as part of "Park Platz"
For this collaboration Colin Self will be presenting a public-facing audio response to Liz Rosenfeld's artistic work and visuals created for the evening. Instigating different levels of activity between audience and performer using Polari, the "criminal" language adopted between queer men in Britain before homosexuality was legalized, will be the foundation on which public interaction begins. Culminating in song, the evening will end with a dissolve of music as dusk fades into the darkness of summer night.
The artist Colin Self lives and works in Berlin. He develops music, performances and environments for the expansion of consciousness, constricting binary parameters and limited perception and communication.
