Experiments in collaboration

Through weekly meetings over four months, the members of Coalesce ARI (now In the Meantime projects) worked towards a collaborative outcome. At each meeting they experimented and played with different ideas and materials documenting them as they were workshopped and then rejected. Struggling to find a collective outcome, the group formed rules and restrictions to structure their play before finally agreeing to disagree. Culminating in a flash night at Kings ARI, the artists presented their collaborative process as a live performance alongside video, drawing and written documentation from their meetings. The outcomes were unscripted and unknown. The artists worked for a final intensive five hour period prior to the opening time, in an attempt to resolve their collaborative dilemma.
