London artist, musician, and Turner Prize-winner Martin Creed has created many works involving live music, dance, and language—in the form of word-sculptures, talks, and songs. Most recently he has been developing a new one-person show, Getting Changed, which is a hybrid of a talk, a concert, and a cabaret. Creed has been described as “part court jester and part subversive philosopher,” and his new show explores borders both personal and national, communication in the form of clothes, and words as clothes for feelings—presented in his witty, responsive, freestyle way.
This concert kicks off Creed’s 2019/2020 North American tour. Part of the performance will also be recorded for a forthcoming Art Metropole release, alongside a vinyl re-release of “I Can’t Move”, originally published by Art Metropole as a CD in 1999.
