Arm’s Length Government Body is a new performance work by Shona Macnoughton which takes as it’s starting point the unique conditions of property in which Céline finds itself, drawing attention to the space as a private dwelling house which can never be owned by its occupants. The audience will bear witness to an intimate contractual arrangement as they are taken through heart warming scenes of domesticity. Tones of care will create new grounds for eviction.
