REMINDER | Private View @ Oh! Oxford House Tonight

Irreversible Materiality is a collaboration between photographer Tracey Fahy and the Senior Dancers (age 60+) at Green Candle Dance Company based in Bethnal Green, London. Founded in 1987, by Fergus Early, with a brief to bring dance; as practice and performance to as wide a cross-section of the community as possible.

Combining hip-hop dance, photography and sound images (influenced by Japanese avant-garde culture of the late 1960s – in particular Butoh dance, which was often performed by older dancers) to create a unique visual language.

Walking Piece | Matthias Sperling

Choreographer Matthias Sperling is creating a new commission for Big Dance 2012. Walking Piece is an installation performance in which 50 people come together to form a single file loop that continuously circumnavigates Siobhan Davies Studios. Performers are taking part in the creative process along with the choreographer to develop the piece. Audience members will be invited to view the work by moving along, around and among the performers’ circular route, encountering not only different events mapped along the route, but also each performer’s individual response to those events. Based on walking, the work will set up a close interaction between performers and audience members. This series of images were taken at yesterday’s rehearsals held at Siobhan Davies Studios.  The event is happening at 12 noon on Sunday 15 July.
