Secret Frieze After Party

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

On Sunday evening the Secret Frieze After Party was held at the elegant, stylish brasserie Cafe Luc in Marylebone High Street. Dancers from Trinity Laban performed in the restaurant. Two dancers, styled as 1950’s diners sat at one of the tables, then began to dance together and solo threading through and amongst the guests.

On the pavement outside the restaurant, two dancers performed Trio A, much to the amazement of shoppers strolling past. Trio A was created by American choreographer Yvonne Rainer in 1965 (like Trisha Brown, a founding member of Judson Dance Theatre).

Last year I had a solo exhibition, Chasing Shadows, at neighbouring gallery GV Art Chiltern Street, eight dancers from Laban and musician Ronen Kozokaro performed in response to my paintings, drawings and sculpture. Later in the year I exhibited at Greenwich Theatre again the dancers and musician performed in the exhibition space. This is part of an ongoing collaboration that I have with Trinity Laban and Susan Sentler, senior lecturer and dance technique teacher at Laban, who facilitated the Laban alumni for QEH, the Hayward and Cafe Luc.

Billi Currie, the boutique hairdressing salon, also in neighbouring Chiltern Street is currently showing six framed drawings of mine, Billi is happy for visitors to drop in to see the work.

Youtube Chasing Shadows

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

In May 2009 I had a 6 week solo exhibition, “Chasing Shadows” in the West End gallery GV Art. The gallery commissioned Martin Smith and Alex May of Quadratura to work with me and a dancer to make an audio/visual composition responding to my work. The dancer is Laban 3rd year student Alessandra Ruggeri. .

Quadratura had an event at GV Art on March 1st 2010 celebrating the 50th anniversary of Yves Klein’s Monotone Symphony and his Anthropometries, calling it Monotone Symphony 2010. Using technology, a soundscape composed for the event and live dance from three dancers, Quadratura created a mesmerising show of blue shadows and silhouettes, as the dancers moved the shadows remained, faded and built again where the dancers appeared next.
