A Performance Hangout

Thinking through the ‘hangout’ as a mode of inhabitation tested across a history of experimental theatre where “nothing really happens” and its more recent re-animation in the form of the online and virtual hangout designed to enable communication across disparate networks, this paper explores the re-employment of the theatrical “fourth-wall”, non-accumulative choreography and relaxed spectatorship as an alternative to participation as its qualified in the “social turn” (Claire Bishop). Using my own practice based research as case study it asks: what kind of art and life might be imagined beyond such agendas (what would this look like? what would this entail?): without losing the fantasy of unity and erotics, or the luxury of time beyond work and leisure.
