Mackey, Sally (2004) Performing Place: The Caer Llan Trilogy. [Show/Exhibition]
The Caer Llan Trilogy comprised three annual performance intensive events of 4-5 days each over the August Bank Holidays, 2002-04 (with gestation periods between). These were:
The format of the intensives varied. The first and second ended with outcomes to an invited audience, for example; the third comprised peer-viewed group and individual practical ‘responses’ across the five days. Originally, the research project was intended to be for one year, the Caer Llan Sestina of 2002. It became apparent, however, even before the first intensive commenced, that a trilogy would offer greater research opportunities.
The CLT was established to explore the performance of place. What might comprise a performance of place? Were there different impulses, processes or realisations in the performance of place to, say, site-specific performance, for example? This was part of a long term research interest into place and performance stemming from the late 1990s. The project at Caer Llan provided an opportunity to explore certain facets of the performance of place in explicit detail. The key research questions of the Trilogy were, broadly:
- To what extent can performance impact upon participants’ understanding of place?
Rooted in current and recent theories of place, the CLT provides a case study of place-related performance praxis, therefore.
