w/c 14th August
What: Bad Vibes Club: Feeling Bad Workshops
When: Tuesday 15th
Feeling some bad vibes? Lean into it and head over to the ICA for a series of participator and performative events related to the theme of ‘resentment’. The event will discuss the nature of resentment and the closely related affect of indignation, and explore the ways in which we can use those feelings, harnessing them and using them as a force for good. Part of the 'In formation' series, this morning workshop, in which participants are encouraged to move with clumsiness, is followed in the afternoon by a performative event, building on the themes of the workshops. Get on down and turn those bad vibes into good. Find out more.
Where: Bunker Theatre
When: Wednesday 16th - 22nd
Fallout, an element of the InMotion Festival will move into Bunker Theatre in Southwark for the next week, taking us on a journey through quintessential jazz, and contemporary movement. Conversation will bounce between the band and the performers, until they intertwine. Fall Out pushes the boundaries of strength through the combined power of music and dance. Expect complex rhythms, and a representation of the raw relationship between a performer and their art. Find out more.
What: Icelandic Dance Company: Sacrifice
Where: Southbank Centre
When: Friday 18th - Sunday 20th
One of The Tung’s favourite events of last year was undoubtedly the Barbican’s Ragnar Kjartansson exhibition, which saw (amongst much else) the commingling of performance art and music. This week at the Southbank Centre the Iceland Dance Company brings its show Sacrifice, a collaboration with visual artists Ragnar Kjartansson and Matthew Barney, for a celebration of common things made holy, inspired by ideas around ritual, religion, and art.
