SUN 25th September 2016 |
7:30 p.m.-10 p.m.
Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion are your hosts at TripSpace's Kitchen for Return Of The Salon, featuring their Venice Biennale duet Body Not Fit For Purpose, Francesca Fargion playing Chris Newman's Piano Sonata No. 1, and Christine De Smedt and Eszter Salamon performing Dance#2
Burrows' and Fargion's Body Not Fit For Purpose clashes angry politics against empty dancing, raising questions in the midst of our laughter.
Newman's Piano Sonata No. 1, written in 1982 and performed here by Francesca Fargion, sounds like a punk version of Beethoven, with absurd grammar and delightfully erratic logic.
Christine De Smedt and Eszter Salamon are both key choreographers of the conceptual and post-conceptual European dance scene, whose work has rarely been seen in the UK. In Dance#2 the two artists challenge each other in a game of word and gesture, where meanings slowly dissipate.
The event includes a plate of food eaten together (included in the ticket price), and the bar will be open all evening.
