Subject to_change: Cupid
Cupid maps an exploration of the stars, love, and personal mythology. Join Subject to_change on a field trip like no other, as they lead you through the cosmos and into each other’s hearts. This work – part performance, part participatory installation – is for a limited audience of twenty at a time.
Subject to_change is a collaborative company comprising three artists: Abigail Conway, Lara Haworth and Lucy Hayhoe.
Subject to_change make live art works that defy theatrical convention by challenging the boundaries of artistic performance. Their work prioritises spectator engagement. It strives to appropriate the traditions and etiquette of theatre and art in order to offer a unique experience.
Fierce Thoughts: The work shares the title of one of my favourite Sam Cooke songs, the chorus lyrics sum up the giddy excitement I felt after a work-in-progress sharing at BAC:
‘Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for me
Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me.’
