Performance: Game Six


Game Six is a work by Tom Sharp and Jim Sutherland about post-truth politics, language, illusion and grace. It follows the forty-one moves made by US chess player Bobby Fischer in game six of the 1972 Reykjavik World Chess Championship against Boris Spassky from the USSR. It appears as a book, a happening in Camden, a website and a showing at Push The Boat Out. The creators will talk about the threads of culture which have led to this moment and then show the eleven-minute work. Combining alliterative text, deepfake, audio, cultural ephemera and chess diagrams, Game Six asks how much of the world you can hold in your head. Following the showing, the creators will answer questions but definitely will not have any of the answers. They will be accompanied by a live replaying of the epic match itself, featuring poets Kevin Williamson and Billy Letford.
