Artangel’s next project has just been posted up….
The thought of the act of crying. The terror of, and need to, attach a smile to someone. These are the quiet and tender moments imagined by men whose lives are not seen to be their own. A culmination of three years’ work with gay prisoners and prison officers, Mark Storor’s a tender subject is a twilight world where questions about who we are as human beings, and why we react and judge the way we do, are posed in a promenade performance that explores the relationship between fragility and brutality, tenderness and violence. Audiences visiting a tender subject will be transported from a central London location to a secret space where they will be escorted by prison officers along a guided route, encountering performance and installations that tell the stories and experiences of the project’s collaborators.
For aged 16 and over.
