Jess Higgins – “a wall, slightly too thin“
CCA Theatre, from 7pm Thursday 31st August.
Tickets: Pay what you can from the CCA Box Office
a wall, slightly too thin is a performance about a fictional monologue and the voice that delivers it. The monologue writes about itself and its hopes for the future in living rooms, kitchens, buffet foods, the bucket of a window cleaner, in the confines of the “well regarded institution”, in throwback fashion and the symbolic passenger seat of a car. The voice, caught up in the monologue’s plot, grapples with the structural politics and flaking relations of the performance itself, and oscillates from the art of persuasion to the craft of vulnerability as it stubbornly pursues its assignment.
Jess Higgins is an artist & writer based in Glasgow – mostly into: forms & questions of performance ~ the voice & noise ~ listening relations ~ complicities & resistances vis a vis -organisation, capital, labour.
