A Manual for Time Travel
Audio performance streamed online as part of Tiny Stadiums Festival
Curated by Groundwork (Amelia Wallin & Maria White)
A Manual for Time Travel is a performance of transmission: a performance without site, without bodies, without a programmed beginning or a finite end. In this work, performance is realised as a time machine, both a formless and wireless entity that shifts through bodies and through time linking the artist (of the past) to the audience (of the future).
A Manual for Time Travel is a streamed sound piece that was originally developed for Tiny Stadiums festival to accompany audiences as they walked around Erskineville and travelled between the various Tiny Stadiums art sites. This work includes a set of instructions detailing how one can become a time traveller who can travel between the past, present and future. The work is written and performed by Frances Barrett and set to a composition by Sydney-based composer, Nina Buchanan.
