4 Days April Overview

Thursday 25 April 2013 to Sunday 28 April 2013, 09:00 to 18:00

4 Days is a quarterly programme of performance, activating Arnolfini spaces for visitors to experience multiple live propositions during a single visit.

With: Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet , Antonia Barnett-McIntosh, Cally Spooner, Caroline Wilkins, Chris McCabe, Claire Potter, Daniel Rourke, Emma Bennett, Holly Pester, James Wilkes , Jeff Hilson, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Leslie Kulesh , Marcus Slease, Mark Waldron, Matthew Drage, Nicoline van Harskamp, Patrick Coyle, Press Free Press, SJ Fowler, Tim Atkins, Tom Jenks, VerySmallKitchen, X Marks the Bökship, Yorgos Sapountzis, seekers of lice

This second edition takes up residency primarily on the second floor with additional events in the foyer, traditionally the first meeting point for visitors.

Performance as public speaking, alongside notions of ‘text performed’ give April’s edition a spoken word theme alongside the potential to explore meanings via language and listening. Between communications, the act of meditation provides a durational subtext suggesting ideas of live sculpture.

The edition begins with performances from Nicoline van Harskamp and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, both of whom then offer interactive installations for the remainder of 4 Days, before heading into spoken performance from Emma Bennett and Antonia Barnett-McIntosh and a short programme from David Berridge’s Very Small Kitchen. Linking with Bristol’s Poetry Festival, SJ Fowler then presents Maintenant Camarade whilst Caroline Wilkins’ performance is also informed by the poet Chlebnikov as well as Russian Futurist Kruchonych.

Other highlights include Cally Spooner’s humourous take on the act of public speaking and a look at the importance of ‘well-being’ including an offer from Parisian choreographers Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan) to take part in regular meditation sessions throughout 4 Days. Spectator feedback and reflection is welcomed throughout the event. There will also be a complimentary meeting of Arnolfini’s regular art and writing salon, Tertulia, on the 27 April featuring the work of 3 local artists.
