Performance (45 mins)
All work Owen G Parry © 2011
Commissioned by Performance Matters for Toynbee Theatre, London.
Recalling tit-bits from the iconic histories of performance art, personal narrative and Owen's own back catalogue of performances, I WANNA BE IN THAT SHOW interrogates ways of remembering and historicising – exploding any rigid canonisation of performance art – it explores the potential in desire and aspiration, and in art that makes you want to make more art.
Performed and created by Owen Parry with performers Luís Lázaro Matos, Giovanni Bienne and Jenna Rossi-Camus. Specially commissioned headpiece by Alun Davies. Includes the film premier of I WANNA BE IN THAT FILM (2010)
The work has been adapted for various smaller scale presentations and lectures.
