LevelFive, 2010 from Brody Condon on Vimeo.

LevelFive is a performance inspired by the self-actualization seminars that first became popular in the 1970s. The project is devised by artist Brody Condon, who is recruiting a cast of volunteers to explore the controversial seminar process.

If you want to take part you’ll be required to attend two sessions at The Bluecoat in Liverpool. The first is from 5-10pm on Friday 30 September, when participants will work with live game designers to create a fake identity and backstory for themselves. These characters will come to life in the performance itself, starting 9am on Saturday 1st October.

Check out the video above to see previous LevelFivers in action, then drop vanessa@andfestival.org.uk a line to get involved.

We’re also looking for extra participants for another performance taking place in Liverpool on 1st October, Oreet Ashery’s Ringo Starr-inspired As-salam wal Hub. Visit our previous post or email ringo@andfestival.org.uk to learn more about it.

Update: Seven Streets has published an entertaining article about As-salam wal Hub, read it here.
