threaded insert

Mark Leahy

A performance of 'threaded insert'.  The material of ‘threaded insert’ is a series of instructions for orientation, movement, speech, and other actions including spelling. These instructions are randomly selected from a database of MP3 files and received by the performer via headphones. The texts derive from guides and instructions for ‘proper’ speech, rules for social and sexual conduct, and control of the body. The score is applicable to any site, ‘threaded insert’ can be anywhere, but in performance the work brings attention to qualities and features of the particular space, and the performing body.
