What stops us from acting on issues we care about?
DRAF presents its 11th annual Evening of Performances, at s Art Deco music venue the O2 Forum Kentish Town, with an exciting programme of live works that range across performance art, spoken word, dance, comedy and music.
The evening presents eight new commissions and a UK premiere by international artists responding to the theme of intimacy.
Each artistic contribution brings forward a new reading and experience, charging the venue with different physical, sensual and intellectual approaches. A wide array of artistic positions take stage throughout the evening, expanding from the personal to the collective, exploring the ways in which people connect to one another.
Artist duos Tate n Lyle and Das Hund incorporate additional performers to examine and express the role of the social and political in personal interactions. Fiona Banner aka The Vanity Press stages a typographic catwalk that oscillates between a runway show and a military march of linguistic components.
She publishes the event under a unique ISBN number, permanently registering it in the public domain. Intimacy is the quality of close relationships between subjects, which may be physical and bodily, however not necessarily sexual.
Each deeper connection creates more room to grow, more to lose and more to become. The human condition, in that regard, relies on the willingness to transcend individual boundaries, and the urge to multiply ways of being in order to have meaningful encounters.
Individuals engaged with acts of care, trust and love are invested in the transactions of desire. The programme at O2 Forum Kentish Town, responds to the various forms and powers of intimacy and its role in understanding and relating to the world around us. The event is free to the public, and coincides with Frieze London.
Her reading takes the form of a sleep journey, with pitfalls and peaks, her voice rising and falling at an unexpected pace. She exposes what might be the most intimate realm, and unfolds her fears and confusion into words. Her voice guides the audiences to a sensuous space where personal projections and associations run amok.
A series of toasts take place throughout the evening and across the venue.
The artist duo Tate n Lyle, composed of Rohanne Udall and Paul Hughes, take the commission towards an expansion of ideas and positions.
Through inviting six individuals with strong opinions —Angela Andrews, Wendy Houston, Bruno Roubicek, Tamara Tomic-Vajagec, Esmond Sage and Monsur Mansoor — and allocating each a space for expression through a celebratory toast, they isolate the individual and publish reflections from their respective lives.
She marks each movement with repetition and sound. Through improvisation and immediate choreographic response, each performance emerges as a unique composition. Her distinctive visual and numeric identity runs throughout the venue and stretches across London.
Her response is told from the perspective of a lack, a wound, a loss. The broken boxing ring she inserts on the stage stands for the central character whose narrative is told through moving image, accompanied by singing and choreography.
Her stand-up comedy is informed by her memories of her childhood. She juxtaposes vital facts place of birth, conditions of upbringing with semantic constellations feelings of self, realisation of subjectivity, aspirations… in the most hilarious and surreal ways.
In this piece, Makishi directs her lens onto shame, an intimate feeling kept hidden from others.
Through inviting the audience to respond and participate in her directional narrative, she builds a deep collective intimacy.
Environmentalist and gender activist punk trio Charismatic Megafauna are a female-only band composed of artists Jenny Moore, Georgia Twigg and Susannah Worth. Their live set of songs from their latest album Semi Regularperforms the intimacy of the political self, through ever-active engagement with the world.
The artists compose visual and sonic narratives around the alienated individual that resists the streams of regeneration and separation from nature. The duo, accompanied by a guitar and bass player, will perform tracks from the album, which is available as digital download and vinyl LP.

The poem, ‘If I Could Tell You’ by Auden is a poem which ultimately does not have a clear message in an attempt to encourage the reader to think up an ideology themselves more specific to the reader creating a bigger impact.
The poem discusses a number of ideas surrounding time, and the ability to see into the future, and learn from things. It can also be seen as a love poem between Auden and his prospective lover, Kallam.
