Reading 6: Eugenio Barba, “Eftermaele: That which will be said afterwards.”

This was a very short reading focused around how an artist speaks to their future audience members. The reading addresses that a performance has to be able to engage its current spectators but it is also the responsibility of the men and women behind the piece to find a way to make this piece travel to its futures heirs. This could be through documentation or personal memory of those there in its original staging.

In context for Lucy’s piece that I am studying she created her piece and then stored artifacts from the day and the creation in a box which was donated to a women’s arts collection. This collection was then donated to Goldsmiths as their original home was removed and then finally it was Anthea who introduced me to the box as she felt it would be of interest.
