Jose Macabra

José Macabra will present "Shears For Tears" at Tate Modern’s Muster Station: The School of Beginnings . It is part of Jose’s “Breeding Grounds” project.

The performance is a parody of Mastery. Seven unrestrained screamers will be orchestrated using a videochromatic score.

It will happen on 3rd of February and will consist of a scored, screaming orchestra. It will be participatory but I want to have some people that will be turning up to the event and that they know what is expected from them.

The event will run from 18:00 to 20:00.

Are you available for screaming at Tate as part of Jose Macabra new performance “Shears For Tears” ?

Breeding Grounds is a series of experiments dealing with Endurance, Rebirth, Catharsis and Altered States.

A collaborative performance will take part with members of the audience collaborating with the screaming orchestra.

Production of new lives through Catharsis, making and unmaking of the world and human suffering in a post industrial capitalistic society are the subjects that this piece will reflect on. Participation of the audience is necessary to go through this modern ritual that is not focussing in the dark for the sake of it. This piece will offer a space for reflection and hope for inner change. The audience will be encouraged to unleash repressed emotions in a safe and controlled space where a primal scream will be enough material to compose from.

Whitstable Biennale is a Founding Associate of Tate Exchange and Muster Station is their second Tate Exchange project, taking place alongside Spike Island's Creative Exchange. Muster Station will also be at Whitstable Biennale in June 2018 (dates and details to follow soon).

Neurosis is the result of repressed suffering. A hyperbolic example of discipline.
