Performance Art Workshop: Psychotic Ballet
Led by Maud Lannen
The session will be built around movement, sound and contact improvisation. We'll take cues from the visual imagery of Paula Rego's Dog Women, the sci-fi figure of the Zombie and the sculptures of Messerschmidt (to name but a few), to develop a language through movement and sound that articulates dysfunctionality and a loss of consciousness.
The workshop will take place in the Angear Visitor Centre at the Djanogly Gallery. This is an open space with floor-to-ceiling windows. It will be a great opportunity to explore movement and play in the space as well as interact with visitors.
Suitable for 18+
Presented as part of The University of Nottingham School of Education's Fine Art Degree Show 2015.
