Re:Flux

The Re:Flux fluxconcert is a one day audio performance event exploring a form of collaborative working developed by Fluxus, the basic principle of which is that one artist/composer will write a performance 'score' which can then be performed by any number of other performers as interpretations.

Each artist involved will score original works to be performed by someone else, and they will also perform at least one original Fluxus work from The Fluxus Performance Workbook.

This fluidity of authorship, this sharing of responsibility is at odds with the idea of the artist as brand, but completely in keeping with the history of Fluxus - itself shifting and open to interpretation: a 'becoming' that does not aim at finality, at closure. This is an ongoing state, which may be explored in performances, but can expand beyond them into a changed way of experiencing the world, bringing the audience into a direct perception of the duration and context of the event rather than a circumscribed, reproduction of an experience.

This points towards a type of performance where the audience create the artwork themselves as they experience it: they become participants. Even attempts to resist this, to passively consume, show choices that mean they have engaged with the work. This involvement is a responsibility as much as a gift, many people have a fear of 'audience participation' being coerced into doing something they are not comfortable with, and it is up to the initiator of such involvement to present options, possibilities and openings rather than just a more subtle form of control. One way this Fluxconcert addresses this issue, is by each participating artist handing their own scores over to others and taking instructions from others in turn.

Contributing artists are Ana Benlloch, Cormac Faulkner, Jonathan Green, Phillip Henderson, Calum F. Kerr, Sian Macfarlane, Niki Russell, Stuart Tait, Keir Williams, and Dan Williamson.
