THE SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LIVE ART, ACTIVISM AND PERFORMANCE PRESENTING THE WORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
“A seamless flow of beautifully crafted, intelligent images” Christopher Hewitt – Live Art Magazine
In 1996 Robert Pacitti travelled to New York to meet and spend time with the author and raconteur Quentin Crisp, in order to produce a new work that took Crisp’s infamous autobiography ‘The Naked Civil Servant’ as its starting point. Exploring issues of liberty – and disobedience – ‘Civil’ integrates live performance, film, slides, original sound materials, and music. Since Crisp’s death the piece has undeniably shifted, and a work that set out to explore shared aspirations and joint activism now reads as a series of images and ideas placed in relation to notions of legacy.
For the past 15 years the internationally acclaimed Pacitti Company has been making award winning performance work for a range of theatre, gallery and site-specific spaces worldwide.
