UNFIX Festival: Scratch Night / The Work Room
Sun 31 March 2019
The Work Room
The Work Room is artist-led organisation supporting independent movement artists in Scotland. UNFIX Festival has invited members of The Work Room to respond to the themes of UNFIX as dancers, movers and choreographers, with the proposition that dance is uniquely well place to explore the ecological reality of our bodies.
The event will feature the following extracts of new work from Work Room members:
Radio Play is a performance in which Ian Spink, Skye Reynolds, Nichola Scrutton and Aya Kobayashi explore an intriguing process of transforming materials from one state into a different form.
Kerieva McCormick is joined by videographer Kim Beveridge to share extracts from their 2nd film, influenced by Kerieva’s research in Granada and Six Nations Reservation, Canada. Interconnecting themes include the excavation / rape of Mother Earth with the ‘disposability’ of women’s and 2Spirit bodies.
Sappho Blue is a new performance by Will Stringer. Coalescing video art, poetry and dance in a sensual unravelling. A tender exploration of people and the sea by a queer researcher. Navigating icons including Sappho, Ru Paul and the Adonis, Sappho Blue is a dynamic declaration of a love affair with the colour blue. Research for Sappho Blue was kindly supported by the University of Agder.
