Agreements is a series of contracts binding two friends or strangers into a commitment to perform a pre-determined action together at a specific point in the relatively near future. Should either of the two people fail to perform their part of action, the agreement outlines the costs they will be liable for.

The project was commissioned by Maddy Costa and Jake Orr for their Dialogues Festival at Oval House, and re-presented in a slightly different form for Christopher Brett Bailey’s late night event at Shoreditch Town Hall just before Christmas.

With this project I hoped to play around in the ambiguity between live performance as something imaginary and something actually happening in the world.
