The Virtuosity of Failure
Wednesday 29 November 2017 4.15pm

Forman Lecture Theatre

Dr David Horne and Dr Simon Clarke (RNCM)

This presentation, with performance, combines our respective specialisms of artistic research into performance and critical theory. Building on recent research, as presented in Graz and Budapest, virtuosity is addressed from related perspectives, namely the nature of the technical prowess of performers as exploited by composers, and the semiotic implications of intellection itself (where demonstrated). Our work is derived from a longstanding project centred on our ensemble, Vulgar Display – indeed, interrogating virtuosity as a topos was its primary goal from the outset – and thus discourse on virtuosity quickly becomes discourse as virtuosity, with all its reflexive implications.
