Emily Roysdon – BMW Tate Live: Performance Room

A second chance to watch Emily Roysdon’s performance of I am a helicopter, camera, queen, captured live Thursday, 31 May, 2012 at Tate Modern.
Performance Room is a series of performances commissioned and conceived exclusively for the online space. Performances are streamed live from the Performance Room at Tate Modern and then made available to watch online after the event. Find out more about the 2012 Performance Room Series:
Emily Roysdon’s online performance I am a helicopter, camera, queen questions and addresses gender politics in this new collaborative work. Over 100 volunteers who identify themselves as queer or feminist move across the Performance Room in sequences choreographed by Roysdon via directions mapped onto the floor of the room. This group action demonstrates how space can be reconfigured as performers mark out territory with their bodies.
Emily Roysdon (b. 1977, Maryland) lives and works in New York and Stockholm. Her interdisciplinary practice has developed the concept ‘ecstatic resistance’ to create a dialogue about the political impossible and imaginary. Roysdon is editor and co-founder of the queer feminist journal and artist collective LTTR. She has performed and exhibited widely across the world.
