mk-ultra dance review

2017-05-05T08:53:23.577+01:00

This is copied from something I wrote elsewhere. I'll come back and tweak it, add links etc. later.

I chose the wrong place to try and escape election horror. Choreographer Rosie Kay's multimedia dance collaboration with Adam Curtis, MK-ULTRA.

Sadly that doesn't mean Adam Curtis was dancing; happily it does mean that part of the show was a triangular screen showing effectively a mini-documentary from him, exploring Discordianism and conspiracy theories, particularly about the Illuminati. And Walt Disney.

That aspect of the show provided the bulk of the visuals that weren't the dancers, and provided the soundtrack - which was mainly music. As a documentary it was necessarily slight, and curiously felt even more tendentious than his tv/online works do (this isn't a criticism, btw).

The choreography and actual dancing were really impressive, and pretty clever. Overall I really enjoyed the show. The difficulty I had with it was that it wasn't clear how the Adam Curtis bits were supposed to intersect with the dance bits.

There was some use of/reference to dance as physical/sexual exhibition and personal expression; to dance as seen in contemporary music videos (especially by the likes of Beyonce, about whom 'OMG: Illuminati!' style conspiracy videos are rife); to cliches of dance (jazz hands); historic dance as transmitted through movies like West Side Story; as well as dance as an impressive physical feat, and an historically-rooted and sophisticated modern art-form. Some of that seemed to be about how we as individuals locate ourselves in a confusing world, express our identities, and how we relate to each other and to structures of power.

However, most of that is retrospective analysis. The bits of it that became obvious really only did so in the second half of the show, and particularly during the final few minutes of dance to When You Wish Upon A Star.




this week on sdm - waspcast s1 e9: a tedious and pointless cul-de-sac

2017-04-24T07:57:46.978+01:00

And now on YouTube and SoundCloud for everyone: in episode 9 of santiago's dead waspcast Adrian Slatcher and Matt Dalby discuss George Saunders, the writing process, the dangers of 'truth' in fiction, George Osborne: editor, editing and journalism, music, Manchester International Festival, the BBC and Salford Media City, theatre, the stage version of Paul Auster's City of Glass and the process of adaptation, Hull Capital of Culture, COUM Transmissions, The Land of Green Ginger, and Basil Kirchin.

Personally I think these discussion podcasts have been getting stronger as the series has progressed - for which I'd like to credit the efforts Adrian Slatcher and Richard Barrett.

this week on patreon - dead media 15: reading shelley's queen mab pt 3

2017-04-24T07:45:53.357+01:00

This week for paying supporters on Patreon is the third part of my reading of Shelley's Queen Mab.

Canto V has a large number of notes, including poetry from other writers, and extensive prose from William Godwin. It is on the whole less repetitive and predictable than Canto IV.

There are four further Cantos to read, which I'll probably alternate with reviews and other content.

dead media exercise diary 10

2017-04-20T07:39:22.096+01:00

And after the late catch-up with 8 and 9, here's Exercise diary 10. Only a day late, and less than a minute long.

dead media exercise diaries 8 + 9

2017-04-19T22:52:31.986+01:00

Damn, been slipping up a lot lately. Forgot to post either of these when they should have been posted - Wednesdays 5 and 12 this month.

That also means that this week's Exercise diary (#10) should have been posted today. I have recorded it, and it's super-short, so should be able to get it edited and uploaded pretty quickly tomorrow.

I'm currently pondering the future of the series, specifically whether to end it or take it fortnightly/monthly.  So given the way I make decisions I'll either carry on for months with the present schedule, or announce a radical change tomorrow.

this week on sdm - dead media 14: archimedes' principle (play) + ender's game (film) comparative review

2017-04-19T21:28:13.591+01:00

Another late entry this week. Actually this was published on time over on YouTube, and picked up more views in three days than other, shorter videos I've promoted here on time.

That, and a like, which is still pretty unusual round these parts. Maybe I need more overlong, nonsensical comparison reviews.

I was a little late posting to SoundCloud, though.

But after all that, it's dead media #14: an hour long comparison of Archimedes' Principle, a small play recently on at HOME Manchester, and the 2013 film of Ender's Game.

Declaration of interest: my youngest sister was assistant director on Archimedes' Principle.

too long; didn't listen: Support your local theatre, support new theatre in general. Both have some flaws in the writing. Those flaws (and others) are much worse in Ender's Game, which can fuck right off.

this week on sdm - dead media 13: reading shelley's queen mab pt 2

2017-04-03T08:03:49.549+01:00

And now published for everyone this week, part two in my reading of Shelley's Queen Mab and Notes. In this second instalment I read Canto IV and the associated notes.

This canto is less compelling than the previous three - it's much more repetitive, especially with the poem within the notes; and the imagery is much more familiar from other writings of the period.

Although there are a few light flubs in the reading, I think it's more successful than the previous instalment. The quality of the recording is also much better - I remembered to use my soundproof booth, tripod and pop-screen this time round.

As always it's available on both YouTube and SoundCloud (at link, and below). Enjoy.

a day off

2017-03-31T07:49:02.853+01:00

I was off work all day yesterday. It wasn't much fun.

It started on Wednesday/Thursday night. I was sweating, barely sleeping, needing to get up and blow my nose frequently, and losing track of time.

And in the moments between waking and sleep there were three distinct things happening in my brain: I was hallucinating a limited sequence of images; I was trying to fit different shapes together; and voices and text jabbered and ran words past me.

The only image I remember is someone standing over me as I lay on the floor.

I don't remember what shapes I was trying to arrange - I have an impression of puzzles, of large, sharp-cornered triangles and other shapes, and of shapes that might fit together to form a globe.

The voices and text were constant, but only individual words got through, most of which I don't remember.

After my alarm went off I had no intention of doing my normal morning exercise, but thought I'd still be able to get to work. So I had a bath, got dressed, had breakfast and left the house.

At which point it all went wrong. I was shaking, unsteady on my feet, and kept losing track of where I was. Literally getting lost on streets I know.

So I went home, called work, and went back to bed. For a little while.

There was more sweating and restlessness, more hallucinations, more fitting shapes together, and more voices and text.

Eventually I was able to get up and almost function normally, though I felt vile.

And around 4:30 I decided to take a walk. I still felt terrible, and I was walking slowly, but it was good to get out.

At least until the coughing fit struck and I threw up a couple of times. At which point I headed home, slowly.

I managed to eat some soup, but I was feeling worse and worse, and eventually went to bed around 9.

And I slept very well. I woke twice, but despite that it was a quiet night and I woke up today feeling great.

dream journal 25 march 2017

2017-03-25T11:16:48.897+00:00

This morning I woke from a dream with shifting locations and identities, and recorded the first dream journal I've done in a while.

You can listen to it here:

allowtransparency="allowtransparency" frameborder="0" height="300" scrolling="no" src="//embeds.audioboom.com/posts/5746330-dream-journal-25-march-2017/embed/v4?eid=AQAAAJhP1liarlcA" style="background-color: transparent; display: block; max-width: 700px;" title="audioBoom player" width="100%">

There's a lot of stuff on audioboom, and I do post there intermittently. The only reason santiago's dead media stuff isn't there is I'm limited to 10 minutes. Maybe I could increase that if I had a subscription, I don't know. I'm already paying for extra capacity at SoundCloud, so for now I'm using that.

this week on sdm - dead media 12: city of glass review

2017-03-20T08:11:39.383+00:00

And after an early opportunity to listen to it through the last week on Patreon, here's santiago's dead media #12: Matt Dalby reviews the stage adaptation of City of Glass. As usual it's available on both YouTube and SoundCloud.

Initially there was a pretty quick turnaround on this: I saw the play in the evening on 11 March, recorded the review in the morning on 12 March, drew the title card image the same evening, and had the whole thing uploaded for 13 March.

City of Glass finished at HOME Manchester on Saturday 18 March, but will be at the Lyric, Hammersmith from 20 April to 20 May.

So what did I make of this stage version of Paul Auster's novella?

dead media exercise diary 5

2017-03-15T08:03:12.903+00:00

From the sublime (Rebel Dykes - see previous post) to the ridiculous, this week's Exercise Diary.

In fact I have a little more to say than the last couple of weeks, including a new record for my morning run. That means the new diary is around eight minutes, which seems like a reasonable length for these.

Watch the diary below. And once you've done that head over to my previous blogpost or to the Rebel Dykes website to see their trailer and follow the links to support their crowdfunder.

The crowdfunder stood at £50 and two contributors when I wrote my blog on Monday morning, and is £709 and 13 contributors at the time of writing (08:00 Wed 15 March). There are just 33 more days to reach their £12 000 goal needed to complete the project.

rebel dykes documentary - help it get finished

2017-03-13T07:58:05.587+00:00

So yesterday, if you missed it, there was a work in progress cut of Rebel Dykes shown at HOME Manchester. The film is a forthcoming documentary directed, edited and animated by friends, telling the story of 1980s London Rebel Dykes - lesbian activists of the Thatcher era.

If you missed this screening, then there's another event in London next Sunday (19 March) which I urge you to get along to if you can. Details of this and any other events are on Facebook, and will be on the website too.

I didn't time it but maybe a third to a half of the film was shown, and it's looking good. For something that's been done by a small group of people working day jobs, for around £3k over about two years it looks great.

The important bit though is please consider donating so that the film and the associated archive project can be completed. It's bloody good and well worth seeing, and I've just donated £30. Their crowdfunder is here at Livetree.

See the video below or at YouTube, and also consider subscribing to the YouTube channel.

Please do consider funding, or at least promoting, what's not only a worthwhile project, but a genuinely entertaining, informative and important documentary.
