Gallery II , University of Bradford and M@BU - Music at Bradford University presents as an off site event for the exhibition curated by Helen Kaplinsky Subveillance: 50 years of the University of Bradford from below..
As part of Subveillance Helen Kaplinsky has invited theatre maker Javaad Alipoor to devise a series of workshops around David Edgar's 1972 play 'The End'; involving students and staff at the University and local activists.
Workshop participants will share their reflections on revisiting the unpublished work for the first time since it was performed at the University more than 40 years ago and David Edgar will attend to contribute to discussion.
‘The End' is an agit-prop narrative about CND peace activists and anxiety surrounding the technologies of war. The original production featured a command module for polaris nuclear submarine and audiences were linked to 3 computers across the UK playing a war game that decided the end of the play.
Expanding on the concepts of sharing and purging employed within the exhibition, Hayden and Potter will perform their recent collaborative work. Influenced by luxury holiday brochures, second hand anecdotes, and a recording of Manningham swimming pool, the work is constructed with methods of redaction and erasure of written materials and memories.
Bridget Hayden and Claire Potter
Bridget Hayden (musician and artist) and Claire Potter (artist writer) make vocally charged sound works rooted in the affective nature of trauma. The duo’s first EP 'Mother To No Swimming Laughing Child' (FortEvilFruit, 2015) was described by The Wire’s Frances Morgan as ‘rooted in quotidian horror’ and by Radio Free Midwich’s Sophie Cooper as ‘one of the most intriguing and thought provoking recordings I’ve ever heard’. Claire Potter has contributed texts on sharing and purging to the Subveillance exhibition.
Javaad Alipoor is a theatre maker that makes formally challenging, politically committed and provocative work that situates audiences and communities at the heart of the artistic process. He is an artistic director of Northern Lines and associate director at Theatre in The Mill, University of Bradford. Javaad is currently working on a solo show "Believers are But Brothers", developed from creating online relationships with the ISIS activists, fantasists and police spies who spread ISIS's iconic propaganda, to tell a story of violence, resentment and the what young men will do if they don’t get the power, money and sex they think they deserve. He recently helped to organise "Bradford Says Everyone Stays", a political event in support of EU migrants and refugees and against the spike in hate crimes following the Brexit vote.
Followed by UnCommons event at a secret location on Darley Street in association with The Brick Box.
Supported by University of Bradford and Arts Council England.

A place to find out about, experience and get involved in music on campus and beyond.
Based on University of Bradford campus, Music at Bradford University offers four threads of provision. A programme of events that brings cutting edge music in all its forms to Bradford; a hub to find out about and promote music opportunities accessible to students and staff; small-scale rehearsal and practice facilities; and a base for workshops and facilitated opportunities for music-making.
The Tasmin Little Music Centre is a great place to drop in to find out about what's going on musically on campus and in the local area. It is also used as a practice space for members, and plays host to performances, workshops and various open groups and ensembles.
The programme of events is delivered by 'Fellow In Music' Andy Abbott.
