” I’m just sending a quick message to confirm that the official performance part of tomorrow’s show has been cancelled. Whilst it is disappointing to lose the support of the gallery due to safety and legal issues, there will still be an unofficial presentation of the performances after Ryan Renshaw Gallery has closed, at 8:15pm on the corner of Water and Warry Streets.
Due to potential future legal issues, I feel the need to state that Ryan Renshaw Gallery does not condone the presentation of these performances, and that by doing so I am disregarding their advice and wishes.
Whilst I am confident that no harm will come to any audience member, it is important to state that there is always an element of risk involved when viewing performances of this nature. A number of preventative measures will be in place to ensure your personal safety, however, some responsibility must be taken on your part to ensure the safety of yourself and others.
That said, I hope to see you all tomorrow night.”
