Playfreely presents Invisible Bodies by Playfreely – a new music initiative by The Observatory, at the Projector, 12 – 14 December, 7:30pm
Playfreely returns with Invisible Bodies — a miasmic surge of rhythms, trance and the unseen, an undertow of currents within fermented identities. Featuring a robust lineup across 3 nights of genre pushing, discipline-bending musicians, Invisible Bodies will tease, interrogate and conjure the diabolical, pushing to a point where boundaries coalesce and the present itself, becomes the invisible.

Embedding/Dwelling: writing intimately about performance, a workshop by Corrie Tan, held at soft/WALL/studs, 13 December, 7:30pm
On Thursday evening, Corrie will host us in a session on “Embedding/Dwelling”. In this invitation to dwell, Corrie will begin by sharing a paper presented last month at the Platform Symposium “On Criticism” organised by Royal Holloway at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London. This paper was developed from her experience as critic-in-residence for the Southernmost Festival. As a parallel case study to this paper, we will also be reading Maddy Costa’s proposition “The Critic as Insider” (2016). There will also be a small writing exercise to embed us in this session, so bring your writing materials.
