I Will Not Hesitate To React Spiritually in the Roaming Room

Greta Alfaro
I Will Not Hesitate To React Spiritually
Roaming Room at Lambeth County Court
Thursday - Sunday 12-6pm
Unitl June 9th

 

Outsideleft favorite Greta Alfaro's London show, I Will Not Hesitate To React Spiritually, has rolled into the Roaming Room, which has rolled into the defunct Lambeth County Court building.

Greta of course, takes over in her own inimitable way, as Greta does. She's repurposed entire buildings before, Comedias a Honor y Gloria filled an architecturally glorious former cockfighting hall with glasses of red wine as Greta invited passers by to pop in to take pot shots using a Glock filled with live ammo at the tiered inebriants. It was a visceral bloody mess. And no wonder, I am lethal myself with a gun that feels like a toy and a static target at six feet or so.

In Lambeth, I Will Not Hesitate To React Spiritually opened on May 1st and has been extended, by popular demand, as they say, until June 9th. 

Using real documents from a case previously brought before the court, with the names and dates redacted, Greta adds film, photographs and other artefacts, and an intertwining of fact and fiction that is constantly unsettling. I Will Not Hesitate has been described as Kafka-esque as Greta creates a fiction around evidence so that our experience as the audience is one of mystery and uncertainty...

Once again, Greta Alfaro delights with her distraught vision.
