Edward Thomasson (UK) makes videos, plays and drawings about the ways implicit and explicit rules of social interaction shape our behavior. His work explores how performance is used to navigate personal, interpersonal and occupational problems in everyday life. During his time at Rupert Edward will build a new live work with a small group of local performers. Edward and his collaborators will all learn new skills that will be used in the building of the work. This collaborative process will be supported by writing and drawing.
