After Party Performance brings together two pieces of work that have been created and performed within the last year. The original shows were called Happy Birthday Party Performance and they premiered on two very specific dates; the actual birthdays of the Rough Triangle performers.
The making and showing of the original events will now unravel in line with the images, rituals and stories that played out within them, drawing parallels between partying and performing. In this deconstructive birthday bonanza we question the point of it all and ask ‘what happens after the after party?’
From tales of personal encounters, to exhibitions of gratuitous celebration, After Party Performance exposes our self-indulgences whilst looking out towards everything else that engenders them. We are excited by the marking of time, the indifference of time as a construct, and the time it takes to think of a wish before the candles burn out on your birthday cake.
Who knows why we do it, but we do, and we’ll keep doing it, every year, year after year. For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow, and so say all of us!
Rough Triangle are a newly formed performance art collective made up of two core performers and an ever changing third member.
