A futuristic anthropology. Étant Ballet – The Cave is a rock opera performance set in a world askew with attempts and remnants of civilization. It begins with the aftermath of an incident, an explosion. A group of people run ashore an unexpected landscape. Everything is about to happen but nothing seems to have changed. The setting: a crash site, in the wild or in the rush of a blackout.

Edited by Susanne Clausen and designed by Fraser Muggeridge Studio.

Reading International is a contemporary art organisation located within the Reading School of Art at the University of Reading. It was founded and initiated in response to ongoing discussions with artists, academics, students and local arts organisations about how we might establish new models of working in education and to respond to the growing pressures experienced by all participants. At the same time it was an attempt to reflect on the existence of the art school within a regional environment and to explore its possibilities in connecting and engaging with the different rhythms of the local arts community, to interrelate and raise ambitions for its co-existence and future. We wanted to imagine the art school as a public arena, which opens its life beyond the academic community and actively engages with a wider public, involving artists, curators, students and community. What would a model for such a public space look like? What are the challenges? What is at stake in this collaborative effort?

We have invited artists to respond to the specific social and historical framework offered by the art school and the town. We have promoted and commissioned solo exhibitions, group and thematic shows, a programme of events including performances, film screenings, workshops and talks as well as offsite projects and temporary public artworks. Our projects have been hosted and supported by a rich mixture of partners within the town, and we have produced several major projects each year, in which artists and curators were given a platform to make new work. We have established ongoing collaborations with international arts institutions and engaged with a wide range of local community groups, schools and young people.
