This is a very special opportunity to hear directly from co-founders of pvi collective Kelli McCluskey and Steve Bull as they give personal insights into their working process, interest in game theory and key driving forces behind the company’s performance, video and intervention art practice.
Kelli and Steve will be in Singapore in November on a creative development exchange with members of Drama Box and Teater Ekamatra exploring the thematic of survival strategies post a global economic collapse.
Additionally, Kelli and Steve are also conducting a one-day workshop for art practitioners, that looks to consider creative approaches to navigating contentious political subject matter through the lens of participatory play and site-responsive actions.
