• Open Studio: Placebo

Clod Ensemble


Clod Ensemble are in residence for a week at Wales Millennium Centre ahead of their performances of Under Glass. In this Open Studio event Clod Ensemble will be sharing some of the work they have begun to create over a week of research and development on a new project. 

The 'placebo effect', despite being an age-old tool for practicing medics, has only recently become the subject of serious scientific enquiry. But does placebo have a deeper relationship to our cultural debates? We want to begin to consider what it means to ‘perform’ symptoms. How does the idea of power feed into this debate? 

How radically can our bodies and minds be changed by others? 

All our Open Studio events are free. Please email kit@clodensemble.com if you are interested in attending.

Clod Ensemble's Under Glass runs from 22 to 25 November in the Weston Studio at Wales Millennium Centre. Click here to find out more and book tickets.
