The Green Room, A new performance by Marvin Gaye Chetwynd

07 Feb 2014 In addition to Marvin Gaye Chetwynd’s exhibition in our galleries, we will present a major new performance.

  1. The Green Room has been funded by Arts Council England’s Catalyst fund. Specially commissioned by Nottingham Contemporary, the performance draws partly on the artist’s research in the city. Some of the scenes have been filmed in Nottingham’s extensive cave system and will be screened in The Space as a backdrop to the event.

    Personal debt is one of the themes explored in the performance, which includes a debt counsellor. The temple from the film Cat Woman, Chewbacca’s nuclear family from the notoriously unsuccessful Star Wars Holiday Special, cat puppets and a green screen will feature too.

    The film sequences shot for The Green Room will become part of Hermitos Children 2, which will be presented at Studio Voltaire later this year.
