I’m delighted to be taking part for the second edition of this international simultaneous performance at 10.00 GMT tomorrow. Details and zoom joining instructions are here.
The 2nd Be-Coming Tree durational Live Art event encompasses 20 live-streamed performances with and about trees happening simultaneously across the globe. Viewed on the same screen via a shared Zoom conference, this multitude of artistic actions offers audiences an experience of entanglement with nature through technology.
Be-Coming Tree is a one-hour global artistic event embracing a perspective of interspecies kinship and grassroots decentralization.
The event will host performative actions occurring remotely in different countries and time zones by and from: O. Pen Be (UK), Danielle Imara (UK), Jatun Risba (SLO), Anne Murray (HUN), Surya Tüchler (DE), Phil Barton (UK), Annette Arlander (FIN), Izabela Waszak (SCT), Lucy Stockton-Smith (UK), Agathe Gizard (FR), Lea Jazbec (SLO), Franco G. Livera (ITA), Adam Engler (PT), Myriam Aitelhara (ALG), Emi Bici (DE), Peter Purg (SLO), Dimple B Shah (IND), Deej Fabyc & MJ Forde (IRL), Christine Fentz (FR), Sally Annett (FR).
My own performance will be an Oxford Road Requiem. The performance is an elegy for over 120 mature trees felled for development between 2015 and 2018. I will make a pilgrimage to around ten of the sites where the murdered trees lived, performing a brief requiem ceremony honouring their former lives and mourning their untimely deaths at each one.
