The annual Researching the Arts Conference will be held June 15th and 16th in the Antonin Artaud Performance Centre (program down below). As part of the conference, Christopher Fox and The Clerks will have a work in progress up for testing based on research into auditory streaming — funded in part by Wellcome Trust, the biomedical research giant — and will need as many guinea pigs (that would be you) as possible during the performance. Sounds, literally, like fun!
