Ac Projects/Counterflows Usurper in conversation with Joyce Whitchurch
Sat 7 April 2018
Usurper is the Edinburgh-based duo of Malcy Duff and Ali Robertson, a mischievous outfit whose off-radar activities have manifested over 15 years in tragi-comic one-off performances, on the spot collaborations, countless CD-rs, zines and underground miscellanea. Traversing the worlds of British improvisation, post-fluxus performance art, absurdist comic book fiction and Scottish luddite humour, they create a world that exists “through” music, where the mundane is illuminated and notions of “talent” and “expertise” are de-mystified.
As featured artists, Usurper will perform across the festival in various spaces, creating new work especially for Counterflows 2018 in collaboration with Belgian based artist Jelle Crama.
Joyce Whitchurch has most recently been combining song, and percussion with power point presentations in front of unlikely congregations. Join Joyce and friends as she considers music, memory and salvation with a little help from the episode of Highway which came from Ipswich in about 1987.
Please note that capacity for this event is very limited – get down early to guarantee entry.
