Tacita Dean premiere presented by Biennale of Sydney and Carriageworks

The 19th Biennale of Sydney and Carriageworks co-present the world premiere of Event for a Stagea new performance work by Tacita Dean running from 1 until 4 May 2014.  The work, which is part of the middle program of the Biennale, represents the first time the artist has created a live performance piece and is a development of her practice. 

Centred on the filming of a portrait of an actor on stage, played by acclaimed British actor Stephen Dillane, the performance will explore the role of the actor as well as exposing Tacita Dean's way of filming to the audience. This one-act theatrical presentation is made in association with ABC RN, who will produce and broadcast a radiographic version of the performance.
