7.30pm. Arts Bar & Café, free.

How does proximity between audiences and performers change the nature of live performance? How does it feel? How long can it last? How close is too close?

These are the questions Curious have explored in their new book “Performing Proximity” from Palgrave Macmillan. Drawing on their experience as internationally acclaimed performance artists, Leslie Hill and Helen Paris have richly documented their creative processes, performances and audience's responses in a series of case studies, told with their unique fusion of artistic and academic reflection.

Join them for the launch of this latest work considering the rise of immersive productions that foreground performer-audience relationships.
