How Astra Worked Herself Into A Shoot

By Chris Michael

The Space Raiders crisp packet coming to life — Astra and her model for a "situated practice" and its three core tenets; “The Otaku", "Welfare Woes" and "The Colour Hollywood”. Delivered via diversions into kayfabe, the Last Action Hero, Eastern-European Depeche Mode fandom, the Predator, a haunted bus stop on Old Kent Road, GTA V and a fanaticism for the Job Centre. From beige British sitcoms to the colour of Hollywood. A verse constantly trying to reach its chorus. A trailer for a movie never to be released. Obsession, transformation, enchantment and romance.Originally performed as a lecture as part of New Genres, a research group at the RCA led by Joshua Trees. All elements produced by Chris Michael. Features narration by Sarah McNab and a track by Koo-Chulu, all used with permission.
