the sky was pink
Dance Base Associate Artist, Claricia Parinussa will develop movement and performance research under ongoing project the sky was pink, working solo and in collaboration with invited artists and mentor Lucy Suggate.
the sky was pink explores the diasporic body through the notion of a body-schema; an ecology of living and sedimented movement languages, embodied experience, trauma and physical memory. The research currently manifests in performance works, video, writing and conversation.
Following Autumn term's ID.Y Fest co-curated with Helen McIntosh; Claricia will host a strand of open conversations through Spring as part of wider inquiries around identity, representation and cultural hierarchies in the current arts ecology. Please see clariciakr.com/In-conversation for further information and how to join in person or online.
I am interested in the ways in which our bodies communicate with us, and the ways in which we communicate with each other through the body. In beginning with our own bodies in the processes of dismantling and reconfiguring dominant structures. In collectively re-telling stories, re-presenting images, re-imagining identities and centring marginalised voices.
Company Class | Thursdays 17 January & 21 March | 10.00 – 11.30
The morning will follow a daily movement practice through a series of ideas, images and questions drawing on a range of movement forms; working in close relation with sound.
