23 - 27 May

Coming up at the end of the month, Dance Base is delighted to have Farah Saleh and Mirjam Sögner joining us as part of our Summer Artist Residency Programme.

Farah and Mirjam will be using their residency to develop and present their dance duet WHAT DOES THE SPACE KNOW. At the end of the week there will a preview as well as two live performances which are open to the public to attend so pleased do read on and join us in the studio.

 

WHAT DOES THE SPACE KNOW

Spaces are temporal. And a potential for a shared moment.

In this interactive dance performance/installation they unfold, come to life, and then transform. We wonder how their resonance remains with us? How does the knowledge they have produced inform the places we are creating now?

In this dance duet we investigate how spaces turn into places through connecting the past, present and future of the individual and the collective. Memories and imagination guide us through the creation of temporary embodied ways of relating.

Between dance, theatre, and installation art, dance artists Farah Saleh (Palestine/UK) and Mirjam Sögner (DE/AT) explore how creatively being in/with vanished places can become a new form of encountering and being with others.
