Spill: Overspill was a writing project created by Rachel lois Clapham and Mary Paterson as Open Dialogues and produced in association with Pacitti Company. The programme was located at the heart of the Spill festival 2007 and 2009 and explored the event of criticism in relation to performance. The aim of Spill: Overspill was to respond critically to the work shown, and to create a realtime discursive context for the Spill festival: one that spilled out of the usual confines of a festival to a diverse UK and international audience.

In 2009, 7 writers worked alongside festival artists and audiences to produce reviews, interviews, collaborative texts, note-based responses, hybrid writings, live writing performances and intervention pieces.

Or start with one of these suggestions:

An Awful Responsibility - a hybrid text by Mary Paterson, in relation to 'Inferno', 'Purgatorio' and 'Paradiso' by Romeo Castellucci

Gob Squad meet Dominique Gonzalez Forrester or Film as Theatre - a comparative review by David Berridge, in relation to 'Saving the World' by Gob Squad

National Platform - note based reviews by all the Overspill writers

Pieces of America - a collaborative text by Mary Kate Connolly and Rajni Shah, in relation to 'Dinner with America' by Rajni Shah

Small Talk - an intervention piece by Alex Eisenberg

Visions of Excess - a live writing performance by Rachel Lois Clapham and Alex Eisenberg, in relation to 'Visions of Excess', curated by Ron Athey and Lee Adams

(W)hole Story - a review by Eleanor Hadley Kershaw, of 'Void Story' by Forced Entertainment
