We challenge the Pop My Mind community to respond to this footage of 'Disappearing Acts'. Create and upload brand new work in response to this dynamic content by 4th NOVEMBER in order to be considered for an exhibition held in the Whistler Gallery, DanceEast.
Standing at the forefront of dance and digital work, award-winning choreographer Yael Flexer and digital artist Nic Sandiland create upfront and witty movement-driven works for the stage, galleries and public spaces.
Operating on the threshold of visibility it offers subtle readings of the body, movement that disappears into the shadows or slips through unseen gaps in the curtains leaving traces on the retina. Evocative images, stories and wry humour give voice to our experiences of disappearance, night-time and politically ‘dark times’.
Bringing together an international team of collaborators, choreography is by Yael Flexer and the company, text by Wendy Houston, direction by Pete Philips, costume design by Holly Murray, sound-score by Karni Postel, James Keane and Nic Sandiland and bespoke digital lighting by Nic Sandiland and Natalie Rowland.
Disappearing Acts is an immersive live work and will be accompanied by Weighting, a new digital installation which will be in situ at the Jerwood DanceHouse the week leading up to the performance.
Yale Flexer - Disappearing Acts is being performed at DanceEast Friday 25th November 2016 7pm & 9pm.
