The Wysing Podcast series shares discussion, research and new work in audio and video formats.

011 An Evening with Harold Offeh, Tai Shani and Maxwell Sterling

Harold Offeh, Tai Shani and Maxwell Sterling ended their Summer residency with an evening of performance and conversation to test new work and present current research.

011A Harold Offeh and Zach Blas

Harold invited Dr Zach Blas for an in-conversation in which they discussed shared themes in their work and talked about future projects. We were lucky enough to be treated to a preview of Blas's new work, Contra-Internet and a preview of Harold's ongoing project looking at the lounging figure in 70s and 80s album cover art.

011B Tai Shani performance of I Am Paradise

Tai invited actress Maya Lubinsky to perform her work I Am Paradise. The text forms part of Tai's on-going project Dark Continent Productions, an experimental and expanded adaptation of Christine de Pizan's 1405 pioneering feminist book, The Book of the City of Ladies, within which Pizan builds an allegorical city for notable women drawn from a medieval conception of history, where fact, fiction and myth are blurred. 

Warning: This performance deals with adult themes is suitable for over 18s. Some viewers may find the content distressing.

Maxwell invited labelmate Teresa Winter to join him in performing and improvising a new piece of music, Anthropocentric Vocal Études, produced during his time at Wysing. For this new work, Maxwell reworked an archive of voices compiled by artist Max Hawkins for the Call in the Night app and samples he recorded of the youth choir Harringey Vox.
