Anticipation: Actualisation is a three part presentation of live performance, panel discussion and written response, organised by in:Action (Dr. EL Putnam & Sara Muthi) for the NCAD Gallery and in collaboration with a wide range of artists, scholars and writers specialising in performance practice. This event is an attempt to explore the complex relationship between the performing body and selected materials, to posit a critique of the body’s dominance in performance art discourse.
