BISCUIT BETRAYAL Service / class / discreet / apologies ; browsers use cookie attributes to determine when to delete, block, or send a cookie to the server. Joined by longstanding collaborators Eugene Choi and Hyun Lee, Ivan Cheng will develop a new work for live-streaming in the performance studio of Campbelltown Arts Centre.

BISCUIT BETRAYAL will see a continued gravitation around language as force, questioning the ethics of anecdote, tense humours, psychic and physical possession, and taking cues from a fascination with improvisation around form, social, and jazz standards. The performance studio is cut to the mould of the lens in BISCUIT BETRAYAL, and we depart from the snug, (non)-thinking space of the fitting room, and a tailor fitting something further.
