Reactor: Function VI
By Jonathan Waring on November 18, 2012
After a seven-year absence, Reactor’s Function events returned last month with Function VI. Prising open the doors of a disused and dilapidated building, Reactor invited participants to enter, navigate its confined space, and help bring Function back to life.
As the evening gloom settled over Nottingham, I was on hand to document. This post contains some of my images from the event.

Paper on Reactor and ‘Big Lizard’s Big Idea’ to be presented at Chelsea Theatre symposium
By Jonathan Waring on November 5, 2010
A paper on Reactor and ‘Big Lizard’s Big Idea’ will be presented at Chelsea Theatre’s ‘A Make Believe World’ symposium as part of the Sacred Festival. Daniel Oliver will discuss Reactor’s practice of ‘relational insincerity’, drawing on both Slavoj Žižek and David McNeill to compare the performative force of our behaviour as participants with our behaviour towards the ‘big Other’ of liberal capitalism.
