RESIDENCY 1 - 5 OCTOBER

Schema (Working title)

Mark Bleakley

Through this residency I will continue developing a new performance lecture: Schema (Working title). Bringing together material from an earlier work (Marina City Pt. 2) and new research to begin to expand on notions around embodiment and the environments or structures that provide space for collective experience. Through exploring references such as rave, Soul Music, protest and the landscape I am interested in developing a choreography that uses re-performance and group demonstration as a means to understanding how we relate to one another and how this creates space for action and collectivity.
As part of this project with Talbot Rice Gallery, there will be 3 events presenting excerpts of the new work and discussions with guest artists.

Company Class: Tuesday 2 October 10.00 – 11.30
I will lead the class through a series of scores and exercises related to materiality and building structure.

Company Showing: Friday 5 October 16.00
Supported by Talbot Rice Gallery and Dance Base.
