    ACTS RE-ACTS 4: Performance Laboratory, Wimbledon College of Art, London

    20 February - 17 March 2017

    Performance Lab: Friday 3 & Saturday 4 March 2017

    “It feels like there is still room for genuine subversiveness within performance [practice]. For someone from Fine Art, part of the excitement and the openness is being the amateur next to someone working with a kind of Theatre.”

    Curator Sarah McRory speaking about the work of Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, interviewed by Lois Rowe at ICA as part of Performance Management, February 2016.

    Acts Re-Acts, a laboratory of performance, new media, workshops, lectures, discussions, events, interventions, seminars and installations, returns for a fourth year to take place at Wimbledon Space between 20 February – 17 March 2017. This year Acts Re-Acts will take the form of an intensive two-day laboratory of selected performances on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 March. Four week-long residencies will run Monday – Friday between 20 February – 17 March, and an exhibition accompanying the performances will be on show for the duration of the project.

    I will be performing A Woman Holding a Liver 2016/17 on Saturday 4 March at 1pm in the studio theatre, and exhibiting The Liver Models 2017, a series of monoprints taken directly from lambs' livers in the acccompanying exhibition.

  • Amanda Couch: Books as Bodies, Bodies as Books performance-talk, Wellcome Library, London, Thursday 17 November, 6-7pm

    Books as Bodies, Bodies as Books is a new performance-talk that I have created for the Wellcome Library on Thursday 17 November, from 6-7pm. It will explore books as bodies and bodies as books - birthing scrolls, reading as rumination, livers as tablets, folds as metaphors of digestion, and palimpsests and skin.

    Books as Bodies… is part of Wellcome Library Insights, a series of events which offer the opportunity to explore a theme or topic, whether a long-held or new interest, whilst showcasing the Wellcome Library’s collection.

    Tickets are free but need to be reserved via this link, https://wellcomecollection.org/events/books-bodies-bodies-books
