I'm looking forward to Treacle by Robert James Anderson tomorrow evening at St James, which kicks off Jersey Arts Centre's excellent autumn season.  Influenced by the work of performance artists Marina Abramović, Bruce Nauman and Laurie Anderson, this promises to explore the performer’s relationship to space, objects, music, text and his own body and celebrate his continuing investigation into the fusion of poetry, music, art and performance.

I find the idea of multi-disciplinary work exciting, that you don't quite know what to expect and anything can happen as the (supposed) boundaries between art forms are breached.  Also I'm already a fan of Robert's writing having admired his poem Papa shortlisted in the 2009 Jersey Arts Trust Channel Islands Writers Competition, which I thought was beautifully judged and moving.

There is a wealth of creative talent in Jersey and it is commendable that the Arts Centre provides a platform for experimental work.
