‘We must try to believe that man’s will is free, that he can consciously exercise choice, and that his choice can be decisive to all eternity.’ Dante’s Inferno.
Welcome to Level 5. Are you the betting type? Have you ever taken a gamble in your life? Why not, what have you got to lose? Maybe nothing, maybe everything for an infinite amount of time?
Our piece 'Casino Purgatorio' was an excerpt from our final piece 'The Devil's in the Detail' which will be performed as part of Goldsmiths Low Brow Live Art festival and Dirty Cop at the Old Police Station In Deptford on Friday 26th March. It was a fantastic opportunity to get our work seen by members of the public and have feedback from a real audience that are unfamiliar to us.

There was a space where a man once lived, breathed, dreamed and then finally disappeared. We took this space and our memories from it, turning these mental images into something new. Characters from films and books become a reality. We now welcome you into our reality, our new vision of the future created by the past.
‘Behaviour of whole systems unpredicted by the behavior of their parts taken separately. More accurately known as Emergent Behaviour.’
Emergent Behaviour are a two-part 'Live Art Duet' that act as mediators between their worlds. People are constantly identifying themselves through their gender, race, sexuality etc and this is creating boundaries. In order to overcome discrimination we must surpass this terminology and therefore create new 'utopian moments' through which people can identify themselves. Why must we be alone in a crowded place such as on public transport? We explore the ideas of togetherness and inclusion; how this can be created within a defined environment, and experienced by a diverse range of people. We hope to create for the individual a sense of community, that we feel is often absent in a great deal of live art, as well as in our society in general. We aim to take these issues out of the everyday and place them into an extra-daily world.
