Notes from a session
'Military men and displays of masochistic exhibitionism and submission in the therapeutic relationship.' 2011.

How is it that one section of the population can become a scapegoat - holding all our collective feelings of powerlessness, submissiveness, exhibitionism and masochism – and another section of the community holds other feelings, of might, self-control, defensiveness and power? In this video one man’s judgement, decisions, life choices and mental health are questioned because of his choice of work. A whole military is indirectly questioned. Who comes under scrutiny, who considers themselves in need of scrutiny – and who, collectively, are we less willing to admit is in desperate need of years of analysis.

Cross The Line 2012
This film shows video footage of two street cleaners chipping away at layers of advertisements. Sanctioned action. The footage is juxtaposed with images of people standing on the sidelines of demonstrations watching sanctioned action take place within police lines. What I say in the film is taken from an article I wrote partly to sort out my feelings around revenge and partly as a response to the revenge film Kill Bill. That revenge film led to others and in ‘Lady Snowblood’ Ransui Tokunaga, a local anarchist, is referred to as “A man with dangerous ideas” by Seishiro Kikui, head of the secret police. I was impressed by the idea that at that time an idea could in itself be considered dangerous because there were enough numbers willing to risk everything. There is a time when words and ideas are nowhere near enough. And so I repeat to myself ‘There is no such thing as a dangerous idea’ ‘There is no such thing as a dangerous idea’ ‘The creation and propagation of ideas is made by those without the guts to act’. I am speaking to myself and to those around me who I see dreaming of action, writing about it, wanting it, but who are not quite able to mobilise to take substantial direct action. I started writing the piece just before the student demos and finished it during. - Alex Brew

Outside Brighton Dole (2004)
We set up two typewriters on a fold-up table, on the street outside Brighton dole.
We had time to write, think. Mostly the film is a record of people who interacted with us during that time.

Dialogue
Combines edited sound and improvised movement as response to/critique of new age ideology that depoliticizes people by diverting attention, away from critical analysis of social and economic contexts, and to a particular narrative of individual and personal 'choice'. The piece wants to name a now pervasive set of ideas that assimilate human existential question, will and intent into an unjust and damaging economic and social system.

Experimenting with performance opening into shared conversation, and then revisiting/ continuing with collective non verbal conversation in relation the sound/ideology.
(solo) Sound and movement: Lisa Fannen
(collective) Dancers: Natasha Lowe Swingler, Katsura Isobe, Jiska Morgenthal and Jan Lee.

Cairngorm Snow
Dance and live music.
Connection to landscape, and across landscapes. The sorrow of the loss of connections to landscape and ourselves from the changes to climate from pollution. The possibilities of creative collective endeavour.
such a lack of respect for what came before you,
such a lack of respect for what will come after you
