colin simon and i silence

Colin Poole and I are presenting some ideas as part of Of Two Minds at Lilian Baylis on Thursday 30 October, 2pm to 6pm.

This is a performance-presentation exploring the intuitive and counter-intuitive ways in which silence is at play in the duets by Colin Poole and Simon Ellis. In it we use our collaborative writing, thinking and choreographic practices to explore two divergent ideas about silence. Martin Luther King said, Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. … In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” And John Cage wrote that, Every something is an echo of nothing.”

How might these references to King and Cage stimulate thought and conversation about our artistic concerns and the nature of our collaboration? Where and how do our silences occur as collaborators; and what role does it play in our grapplings with friendship, art and difference?
