Whitstable Biennale

Transmissions editorial assistant Jenny Campbell-Colquhoun went to investigate the quintessential seaside town Biennale at Whitstable, which this year had a specially comissioned performance programme curated by writer Sally O'Reilly. The first clip of events is from the endearing 'Speed Cabaret' that attempted to rethink how performance is structured, in this case by borrowing from the contemporary social template of speed dating. Setting up a series of short 'dates' with each performer and intimate pub table of guests the first material is from a comedy-based encounter, this set a good mood for what's to come.
