Instructions: Tim Etchells in conversation with Ant Hampton

Artist and writer Tim Etchells will invite performer and writer Ant Hampton to discuss delegation and collaboration across different fields of practice. The two practitioners will reflect on how different strategies for relinquishing control of the final outcome are embedded in their work and on their relationship to improvisation and incompleteness.
