A group of three performers stand in front of a bright blue garage door. They each wear variously coloured and textured t shirts, drawstring shorts and caps. They all look directly and seriously at the viewer.

Shamgods set up shop across the weekend giving access to their growing range of products and services including the the launch of their ‘Petty Gripes Listening Service’:

Do you have bugbears, gripes, minor grievances that seem too petty and inconsequential to engage the services of an expensive therapist? Don't place unnecessary emotional burdens on your friendships. Come and outsource all that listening to us. You'll be assured complete confidentiality; no implications for working or personal relationships; no unsolicited advice, just 100% certified, pure, unpasteurised listening.

Also available will be fashion line 'Shammwear Édition Limitée', 'Shamgods Lawn and Garden Care' and ’Shamstock Video and Photo Library’. And special in-store performances of ‘Shamgods: Live’.

About Shamgods

Shamgods is an interdisciplinary performance business venture that offers an ever-growing range of products and services, including live performance, a certified fashion line, lawn and garden care and a petty gripes listening service. A collaboration between performance makers Matthew Prest, Nitin Vengurlekar and Malcolm Whittaker, Shamgods play with the changing nature of cultural capital by pitting the sacredness and precariousness of the ‘live’ in performance against ways of commodifying it and creating surplus value through ongoing forms of paratextual presence, both online and through performative interventions into everyday life.
