Mark Bleakley: How We Handle Things

We regret that this event has been cancelled.

How We Handle Things is a performance installation exploring the shifting relationships that we have with bodies, objects, memories and touch. Investigated through a contemporary lens, performers and audience build a landscape together – a mix of flesh and plastic, simultaneously revered and disposable. The environment is one akin to a laboratory, inviting us to contemplate interactions between body and object through dance, sculpture and conversation.

The work will ebb and flow throughout the duration of the day, meandering from near-static installation to a fluid, mobile landscape. The cycle of activity will repeat after approximately 50 minutes.

Audiences are welcome to enter at any point during the day, and will be invited to take part in creating sculptural forms at the beginning of each cycle.


Mark Bleakley is an artist and choreographer based in Glasgow. This work is devised in order to invite guest artists to bring their own artistic inquiry into the work frame.
