In 2008, Pinchbeck will work with his father – Tony - to recreate the post-show party at which his parents met in 1970. His mum was a nun. His Dad was a Nazi. It was an amateur dramatic version of The Sound of Music. At the post-show party, the man playing the baron collapsed leading to the end of the party. For The Post-Show Party Show the show starts at the end of the show and the beginning of the post-show party.
Michael Pinchbeck is a writer, live artist and performance maker based in Nottingham, UK. His work is an exit strategy from the everyday. He operates autobiographically by using self and site-as-source to illustrate loss and explore absence. He aims to challenge the boundaries of text, performance and installation. He is interested in moments when work ceases to mean and how we reconfigure the meaning at these moments.
