The Cosmic Working Group – report on findings to date

Text on wooden stand and performance, 2016-2018

The Cosmic Working Group – report on findings to date is a reproduction and performance of The Cosmic Manifesto, a fictional, speculative text composed during a workshop led by the Russian art collective Chto Delat at the Impulse Theatre Festival in Düsseldorf in 2016. Influenced by the multiple heritages of social realism and soviet cosmology as well as by the collaborative process of this exhibition, the work plays with the idea of an invisible community, exploring the geographies of human introspection and cosmological models. The work is performed during the opening of the exhibition Notes from a trembling community in a wilful state of flux together with the work Transcription by Season Butler.

‘That Gratitude Attitude’ is the story of a singer who receives an invitation to a birthday party they don’t want to go to so they cut school and hitch a ride to a festival where they meet characters that will change their life forever.

The Gray Voice Ensemble (Berlin) is an ongoing, since 2013, experiment in community directed by Elisabeth Wood. The anonymous voice of Albert McCloud is the vehicle.
