Live Architecture: the 55 Minute Hour is the work of Off Plan International, a collective featuring Mary Corrigall, Amy Watson, and Nelisiwe Xaba. Set in a disused manufacturing site in Salt River, once the hub of Cape Town’s garment manufacturing industry, Live Architecture: the 55 Minute Hour negotiates regulated factory life, clothing and the politics of gentrification. The interdisciplinary programme brings together the work of sound and performance artists to create an experimental and immersive experience that encourages audiences to interrogate the chosen site outside of its everyday use.
