weird séance, daniel oliver at norwich arts centre


In February 2016, Weird Séance: Dyspraxe 2 (Max Dyspraxe!) exploded onto the stage at Norwich Arts Centre.
A raucously deconstructionist, roughly layered participatory performance about participatory performance, this unabashedly irreverent gathering was hosted by charlatan spiritualist and performance art reconstructionist Daniel Oliver.

Not too long before, in the very same space as this event, and in a similar show hosted by Daniel, something went fatally wrong. Working with audience interaction, role-play and re-enactment, Daniel cobbles together the details, responsibilities, and causes of this elusive tragic accident.

Weird Séance was part of Norwich Art Centre’s [Live] Art Club strand of events. Find out more about Norwich Arts Centre.
