Slight Works is a day-long event that explores the ways in which live work – with a focus on minimal actions – can be proposed, presented, and documented. All the work examines the relationship between the body and space with a lightness of touch and a slightly diffident, awkward sense of humour.

Slight Works brings together the work of three artists who include performance in their practice: Emily Speed, Andrew Gannon and Thomas Geiger. While this event includes live performances, it also addresses the life of a performance after its first iteration, through documentary images, films and re-stagings. Timings for the day will be announced soon.

This event forms part of Open Out – a week of performance, installation, film, dance and music at The Fruitmarket Gallery.
