Exactly fifty years after the legendary 9 Evenings: Theater and Engineering, Arts Catalyst revisits this hugely influential art event with a new performance commission by Robert Whitman. Whitman, a participating artist in the original 9 Evenings and co-founder of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T) who produced it, presents Side Effects. This spectacular evening of performance will mix pre-recorded and live-streamed moving image from across the city, animated by a live performance unfolding over eight acts in the ex-industrial space of The Crossing, Kings Cross. An accompanying exhibition will be held at Arts Catalyst Centre for Art, Science & Technology.

This programme is supported by Arts Council England, Cockayne – Grants for the Arts, The London Community Foundation, PACE, Afterall, Central Saint Martins, UAL, King’s Cross, Goldsmiths, University of London, University of Westminster, London: The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) with the Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture (IMCC) and The Performance Studio.
