LIVE brings together three scripts and one score written by Janice Kerbel over the last ten years. While each is a text for a performative work, this collection treats notation as form, and highlights how language lies at the heart of Kerbel’s practice.

Performative works assembled in this book are Nick Silver Can’t Sleep, a radio play for insomniacs in the voices of six nocturnal plants; Kill the Workers!, a play for stage lights inspired by dramatic narrative and executed solely with theatrical lighting; Doug, a live vocal performance of nine songs for six voices; and Ballgame, a recorded radio announcement of a baseball game conceived by mathematical averages.

Janice Kerbel is a Canadian artist living and working in London.
