Movement & Drawing
with architect Ed Frith and choreographer Caroline Salem
Wednesday 15 July, 6:30pm – 9pm
In this workshop, you will be drawn into a heightened awareness of your body in movement, allowing you to explore your relationship with Katrín Sigurðardóttir’s installation. Open scores for movement will be followed, but also devised by participants. Drawing as a reflective practice will be a central part of the workshop. The session will conclude with a chance to discuss this guided engagement with Supra Terram.
This event is held in partnership with Moving Architecture.
Architecture & Choreography, a Collaborative Practice: over the last twenty-five years, collaboration between Caroline Salem (choreographer and founder of Space@Clarence Mews, which provides space and creative support for performance makers) and Ed Frith (Director of Moving Architecture and Course Leader for the MArch at Art University Bournemouth) has led to the creation of both performances and buildings. From public spaces in New York; theatres in Spain, their house and studio, installations and buildings in the UK and China, their disciplines have combined to provide a common ground for practice. They have recently been reviewing their work, and resulting from reflective presentations in conferences in Finland and the UK, have unearthed five concerns, which run through their work: horizon, ground, within, climb and height, which provide a series of somatic frames through which past work has been questioned and which they are now taking, more consciously, into new work.
