Good Shit From Bristol - Live Art Weekender & 3 Minute Warning
Sat 12 Jan 10.00am - 11.00pm & Sun 13 Jan from 3.00pm

Steve Robins
Sat 12 Jan, 10.00am - 11.00pm
Foyer & Light Studio \ Free
For one year Steve Robins worked out, read the news and wrote a journal: Coinage is the result. Self-loathing and self-love compete for prominence and sit in uneasy proximity with current affairs. There’s a little humour, and partial nudity. Expect a lot of words, an awful lot of words. Steve Robins, Coinage

Pete Barrett
Enough Rope
Sat 12 Jan, 3pm – 4pm
Arnolfini Bookshop
Peter Barrett is an artist and poet who likes making life difficult for himself. In Arnolfini Bookshop, Barrett will bind his legs in knotted rope then attempt to make it home through Bristol’s streets. In this uncomfortable state of bondage, the artist will play out a public spectacle of self-imposed punishment.

Michael David Jones
Define Me
Sat 12 Jan, 4.00pm - 6.00pm \ Dark Studio
1:1 performance in 5 min slots
Final work will be displayed for general viewing from 6.30pm - 7.00pm
Free \ Booking Essential
Rather than seeing the self as a fixed thing, encased by the limits of the skin, Jones suggests the exciting possibility that the self can be endlessly recreated through engagement and interaction. In this subtle one-to-one performance, audience members will be asked to make their own marks, inscriptions and judgments onto the artist's body. By giving over responsibility for his identity, the artist invites the audience to construct a new ‘self’ for him.

Peoples In Pieces
15 Storms In A Teacup
Sat 12 Jan, 4.30pm & 5.30pm
£3.00/£2.00 Concs or Free with an Evening Ticket
Limited Capacity - Booking Essential
Arnolfini Associate Artists, Peoples in Pieces make poetic work that contrasts the mundane with the quietly spectacular. Enter their world of kitchen-sink science as they attempt to capture the weather in a jar. Struggling to make their experiments work, they toy with the impossible, guide the audience through the darkness and give advice on surviving disasters.

Down To The Earth
Sat 12 Jan, 5.00pm - apx. 6.30pm
Between back of Jury’s Hotel And Arnolfini
Cliff-climbing, the ode to the vibes of life itself, the game of brave ones, of riskers and adventurers, of conquerors and protesters, of those who are pissed off by something in their life. Go find a place and grit your teeth, start to climb. One hundred metres is not a long way to go.
