School of Change

 



SCHOOL OF CHANGE - Live

Friday 26 October 2012, 7pm


Artist Jennet Thomas and composer /performer Leo Chadburn present a live/film show, hot on the heels from the acclaimed Matt's Gallery show - exploring a hybrid, cross-over space between art, film, music, speculative fiction and performance; the 50 minute narrative film, with live intervention, songs, and lessons.

SCHOOL OF CHANGE is a new franchise of girls' schools, existing in a post-apocalyptic future, so radical it threatens the working of reason itself. SCHOOL OF CHANGE attempts to shore up against this breakdown, to educate a new generation to adapt, building an alternative ‘hive mind’ that has a new, stronger kind of logic. 
Each student’s learning is bio-technically monitored and assessed through the Personal Circle lodged inside them. High-scoring pupils perform their learning through a rhythmic song and action practise: ‘the Production’. This trance-like group activity produces small solids - Units of Knowing – the currency through which the new economy tries to function.
