Rachael Clerke and Josephine Joy are stumbling around in the dark.
Over the past two years they have spent too many hours trawling through the Department for Work and Pensions website, too many hours at the Job Centre and too many hours wondering if they’ve got it all wrong. They have performed children’s theatre at live art festivals and they have cried on the phone to their mothers more times than they might like to admit.
Clerke and Joy’s Tips for the Real World (or, if you’re not crying you’re not doing it right) a performance lecture of useful information for and by recent and soon to be art graduates accompanies a publication and website (coming soon) of the same title.
Despite this hint of functionality the lecture soon propelled back into a state of uselessness – the audience completely distracted by the fact they’d both just whipped off their tops and were standing telling us about tax with their boobs out.
