Presented by Pablo Pakula

This new audio-visual live art piece interrogates the nature of offence. What offends us? How? And why? Ultimately asking, how should we respond?

Following the structure of a sonata and choreographed to five pieces by Britsh composer Anna Meredith, YES NO BLACK WHITE will allow you to get to know your deepest personal offense-taking mechanisms. What pushes your buttons? Where are your limits?

A cognitive, moral, and sensory attack on your psyche.

You are allowed to laugh!

The piece is a continuation of Pablo Pakula’s ongoing investigation on musicality, the dramaturgy of lists, and strategies to problematise meaning-making processes.

Pablo will be available at the bar to have a chat and answer any questions.

Recommended age: 16+

About the artist

“I’m a European Mongrel, live artist, performance-maker and event curator.

I make work from the position of an outsider. My practice is process-led, socially-engaged and driven by queer politics. I believe performance can really DO something; that it can go beyond rational perception, generating shared experiences that are visceral, conceptual, and emotional…

I also teach at the University of Birmingham.”
