Body Narratives III May 2016

On the 21 May we presented a day of performance and drawing in collaboration with London College of Fashion MA for Performance graduates Ester Mangas and Tania Ortiz Zamorano.

The workshop began in the Loft space at the beautiful Tanner St with a sculptural piece by Tania inspired by an old folktale from Japanese tradition – “The bamboo cutter’, set to traditional Japanese folk music.

The second half of the day featured a dance piece by Ester, starting in the courtyard, then moving into the Garage. As the performance progressed the movement of the performer released paint from the corset of the dress to smear down it and across the performers body onto the floor.

Massive thanks to Ester and Tania for their brilliant input and costumes, performers Martina Conti and Verena Schneider, Polly and Rosie at Ugly Duck and Cowling & Wilcox for their promotional support. And of course- a massive thank you to all who joined us on the day to make such great creative responses to the performance- what a brilliant day!
