The only instruction for the participants was that they had to Kiss One, Slap One.
Everyone performed the slap or the kiss, nobody refused, and nobody went against our set instructions.
After performing the two actions one of our audience members stated:
“I felt guilty after the slap as I feel I should have refused to do it.”
Another audience member stated:
“I’m not sure why but I would definitely back out if I attended the performance again.”
This instruction was performed Tuesday 18th November 2014 at 14:15-14:45 at the Kingsway Studio Theatre, University of Chester and during Instruction(s) : Exhibition on June 1st 2015.
As with all of the performances that took place on our exhibition day we collected the sound and smell of the performance in a jar and displayed this in our space.
