“I don’t know what I want, but I want it NOW!” presents an international, European exhibition of new and existing visual art, multimedia, sound and performance works that explore the interplay between the urgency in politically and environmentally precarious times.
The exhibition includes a special performance and Q &A on Sunday 5 November: 4:30 – 5:30 pm at APT* Gallery, 6 Creekside, Harold Wharf, SE8 4SA
MEET ME AT… When art and dance meet, extraordinary things can happen.
This performance combines the worlds of visual art, performance and dance. Led by an artist and a choreographer, this project aims to develop a deeper understanding of how movement and art can intersect and influence each other.
Neurological research has shown that when people look at a figurative sculpture, their brains process the visual data in specific but often different ways. Artists and dancers are trained to perceive the body in ways that are different but difficult to put into words. In this project, dancers at the beginning of their careers, will have the opportunity to work with experienced mentors from the fields of choreography and art on a hybrid art performance, incorporating their respective experiences and creative skills. The project will culminate in an informal performance of the work devised throughout a weekend of collaborative workshops led by Bim Malcomson and Alma Tischlerwood.
This project aims to inspire dancers to continue exploring the connection between movement and art, fostering a lifelong appreciation for both disciplines. Get ready to embark on a transformative journey that will expand your artistic horizons and ignite your creativity!
