William Hunt: Saturday Night TV

William Hunt: Saturday Night TV
Saturday 30 May, 7.30-8.30pm
FREE ADMISSION, booking essential
Off-site: The German Gymnasium, Pancras Road, King's Cross NW1 2TB
For the finale of William Hunt's artist's residency "I don't believe you, you're a liar" at Camden Arts Centre he presents a major new installation and performance work in King's Cross. A battle of the bands, X Factor hybrid, the work features live music and tough talking judges.
During his residency at Camden Arts Centre in April and May, Hunt transforms the Artists' Studio into a recording studio, and invites singer songwriters to perform hooked up to a lie detector (polygraph machine). He explores the ability to separate mind from body, asking is it truly heartfelt or are they just pushing our buttons?

“I don’t believe you, you’re a liar” was Bob Dylan’s response to a heckler in 1966 during a performance at the Free Trade Hall when he had made the transition to electric. Acoustic and especially folk music had traditionally been associated with protest and the authentic.
At 'Saturday Night TV' acts perform linked up to a lie detector and are critiqued not only on their singing talent but on their genuineness. The final is judged by a ‘celebrity panel’ along with the audience who are asked to shout “play loud, play real loud” or “I don’t believe you, you’re a liar”. Join some members of the audience by dressing as Bob Dylan.
