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.
Casting himself as ‘operator’ rather than ‘performer’, Robin Deacon confronts indeterminate fears regarding the passage of time and the process of ageing by presenting a series of actions in strict adherence to a forgotten railway timetable. Using documentary style film, monologue and a working model railway, Prototypes asks the audience to speculate what waits at the end of the line for all of us.
