Performature : Performateur (P:P) was conceived by WeiZen in 2019 as a research framework to reimagine the performative vocabulary in relation to personal embodied histories. Inviting a changing collective of artists, WeiZen's provocation is to investigate how imagery can shift performance-devising, its spatial and compositional boundaries, by asking what have we not attempted before?
For Performature : Performateur 4 (P:P4) WeiZen is joined in a durational event by Oliver Damian, Emily Eather, Peter Farrar, Ryuichi Fujimura, Phillip Mills, Juliet Sato with guest 'bewilderers' including Sue Callanan, Lian Loke, Laura Altman, Margaret Roberts, Shota Matsumura and Alan Schacher.
Structured improvisation developed in the form of physical and sound-object compositions of solos, duets, trios, etc themed around materials that hold memories and accompanying actions.
