Georgie-Lord-Power-Out.jpg

Thursday 14th March 2012, 6.30pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Syndicate 1: Allopoiesis

Technology isn’t just changing the way poetry is produced and disseminated, and it isn’t just creating new media forms for poets to colonise. It’s also creating a context in which many techniques characteristic of experimental poetry practice have become commonplace.

The first instalment of Syndicate will explore the raw intersection of avant-garde poetics, technology and cyberculture through a series of live performances, installations and dialogues. Join us to debate the meaning of authorship and identity in a digital context.

Syndicate 2

Georgie-Lord-Power-Out.jpg

Sunday 15 April 2012, 6.30 for 7pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Syndicate 2: Real Time Strategy

Bram Gieben, Justin Katko, Lisa Otty and Jo L Walton will perform / present under the broad rubric of Real Time Strategy. The term chiefly refers to a genre of computer game, and thereby hints at Syndicate’s large, even ontologically nosy, exploratory remit.

Real Time Strategy also has an aura of the ad hoc, of acts on the fly. Just as allopoiesis elides with autopoiesis, so “real time” suggests a raft of unreal types of time: turn-based time, false time, untimeliness, being out of time, and – ahead of all – being before one’s time.
