THUR 24 APRIL, 8PM
Commissioned local artists Sasha Andrews and Hetain Patel with Louise Clements will be talking about their new work for Digital Broadway.
Hetain and Louise will also hold a short performance of tabla druming and Kathak dancing as part of their presentation about A SILENT SEARCH FOR 16 CLASSICAL BEATS to illustrate their collaboration and the how the dialogue exists in its classical form.
A SILENT SEARCH FOR 16 CLASSICAL BEATS
On the Glass Screen until April 30.
Borrowing a 16 beat rhythm cycle from Indian classical music and dance to structure this new video work, Hetain Patel and Louise Clements investigate notions of origin and displaced culture. Using the movement vocabulary of traditional Kathak dance to shape the visual rhythm of this silent work, the performers play with the conversational relationship inherent between Tabla drummer and Kathak dancer. As the performers fall in and out of sync with one another, Hetain uses red Kanku pigment both to provide structure for and to trace movements from Louise’s dance.
