Can you wait for 3 hours as part of an artistic commission?
Will you wear one of those barriers that you find in an airport as a belt in public?
Are you ok with being filmed as part of the creation of this artwork?
If yes, then artist Claire Weetman needs you!
Claire Weetman has created the artwork, ‘What are you waiting for?’ which will be staged in St Helens to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2018. For this she needs up to 10 people to wear the specially made belts with a tensabarrier attached. As part of this role you will be asked to wear the belts in a public space and to move through that space in a choreographed way.
The performance will be filmed and the subsequent footage will be exhibited as an artwork by Claire Weetman.
- There will be a 1 hour briefing/rehearsal session on the morning of Tuesday 18th September, which will be paid at £10 for the hour.
- 4 people are required for an event at Thatto Heath Library 1:30-4:30pm on Tuesday 18th September. This will be paid at £30 for the 3 hours.
- 10 people are required for the event at Thatto Heath Library 1:00-5:00pm on Wednesday 10th October. This will be paid at £40 for the 4 hours.
By taking up the role you agree to be paid as a self employed person, responsible for your tax and national insurance responsibilities. If you cannot guarantee this, but would still like to be part of the performance, travel and reasonable subsistence expenses can be reimbursed on receipt of evidence of expenditure.
