Chris Meade and Jia-Yu Corti, writer and dancer, collaborate in NEARLY, a performance at the Chisenhale Dance Space at 7.00pm on Friday 22nd February – and as an installation at King’s Place on Sunday 24th as part of Jewish Book Week.
“throughout the day visitors are invited to contribute to a display of Nearlies – stories of things that nearly happened to us which we’d like acknowledged as part of who we are – in exchange for ‘I Nearly’ badges. These anecdotes, gathered on paper and online, will form an element in What Didn’t Quite, the digital fiction currently being written by author and bookfutures blogger Chris Meade. From time to time he and dancer Jia-Yu Corti will perform a twenty minute piece involving the nearlyological manifesto, a nearlydance of transformation, a paper costume designed for the piece by Lucieta Williams, threads of the story being written, the reading and classificiation of collected nearlies.”
