High Concept Labs > Augusto Corrieri, play to delete
play to delete is a work-in-progress presentation at High Concept Labs in response to Goat Island’s We Got a Date (1989) a work made of dissonant actions and sounds, layered chaos, difficult sexual encounters, and ending on the arresting image of eyes bleeding through a golden blindfold. Augusto Corrieri is a performance maker, writer and sleight-of-hand magician, based in the UK. His work explores the cross-overs between ecology and an expanded understanding of performance.
