Botch is a hyper-administrated performance system made of bodies and voices. Multi-tasking with microphones, loudspeakers, paper and charcoal, an agile ensemble of performers play with and against a matrix of procedures drawn from the field of corporate "performance management". Someone draws a bold line to the rhythm of a metronome, another fast-forwards her partner's live voice like a tape machine, a third sings a bureaucratic duet with a small loudspeaker. Botch lifts the lid off the apparatus to find a torrential sewer of sound and brain leaks that point up the power of human error.
Botch is being presented as part of HERE Arts Center's CULTUREMART 2012.
