GAIP (General Assembly of Interested Parties) in conjunction with TESTING GROUNDS presents gather, a 24 hour performance event on May 14/15, 2016 at Testing Grounds, 1 – 23 City Road, Southbank, Saturday 6:00 pm. until Sunday 6:00 pm.
From the GAIP website:
gather will function, in part, as a closing ceremony, marking the end of a chapter for Testing Grounds (which will undergo a major upgrade over winter).
There will be no programmed performances, instead, spontaneous, adhoc, on-the-spot collaborations, and an improvisational approach to performance of any material will be the predominant mode of relation, forming a constantly negotiated improvisational ecology.
