in United Kingdom
Agony Art | Saturday 14 April @ 7.30pm
with Rahel Vonmoos & Seke Chimutengwende
Rahel is an independent dance artist who makes her own and collaborative work for many years. The piece performed at Agony Art will be called I want to sleep or another portrait (nr. 4) or an experiment in 3 parts. For this event Rahel is interested in the way that pre-planning might fail and how chance can fail too. There will be projection in the space.
Seke has been practising performing solo improvisation since 2006 in a variety of contexts from theatres to clubs to dance studios to people’s living rooms. Seke usually works with movement and text and generally performs without any pre-planned structure or theme, preferring to find both in the moment of performance.
