This series of performances (2019-2020) brings together Brian Lobel's research in one-to-one performance making and notions of intimacy, using the simple act of communal television watching. Based on Brian's 2015-2018 performance, You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me, You Have to Forgive Me (Sydney Opera House, 2016, amongst other locales), BINGE saw over 500 one-to-one and small group performances. Audience members began by completing a Self Evaluation Document (available at the bottom of the webpage) and paired with an artist with in-depth, fanatical knowledge of a tv programme (Spaced, The Office, Bad Girls, Sex and the City) for an intimate, 30-45 minute performance involving a discussion, ritual for opening/closing the space, and a shared watching of an episode of tv. This practice research explores how one-to-one practice is produced, curated and performed, with each of the 20+ artists using the same basic score but interpreting it in various different ways. BINGE considers how one-to-ones are scheduled (BINGE in Manchester and Birmingham worked on a rolling basis, where BINGE (digital) at La Jolla Playhouse was individually ticketed), as well as how one-to-one practices are produced in a post-Me-Too moment (as all audience members, despite having one-to-one, could see all other one-to-one performances happening simultaneously) and considerations of safety for both audience member and artist.
