Mat Fraser first performed in a Live Art show in 1994, "RIOT!" at London's ICA, since then he has continued to pursue this mode of performance practice: the ultimate in raw, direct performed reactions to the specific environment... and for the World. Often making his body the canvas for the work, Mat has produced several performance pieces ranging from blisteringly angry to absurdly funny, from socially disruptive to engagingly charming.
Mat currently makes works across a range of disciplines from cabaret to experimental theatre via television, and regularly returns to Live Art where he finds the live moment to still be the purest form of social intervention.
Mat Fraser and Live Art Development Agency, 2011, DVD-PAL, 54 minutes.
