Daniel Linehan, Montage for Three
This month's Chisenhale Art Club is happening tomorrow 6 April 8pm - a fiver on the door + donation bar. Featuring 3 performances of Live Art, New Music and Dance:
Dan Watson (Dance)
Precariously - a work in process.
Dan is a little uncertain as to how this will go. There may be dancing. But it's unlikely. For your own safety please remain seated until the house lights are switched on. - A duet.
Made in China (Live Art)
We Hope That You're Happy (Why Would We Lie?) Jess and Chris claim to be lifelong friends. But they also claim each other are liars. And that they are eyewitnesses to the majority of the key world events of the last hundred years. - A performance about trying to relate and connect: to the person next to us and to the unknown victim of a televised tragedy. Featuring a cooler full of beer and ice cream, a preposterous repeated dance routine, two kilos of flour and a lot of ketchup.
Michael Schmid (Music)
Kurt Schwitters - Ursnonate
Michael is a Brussels based musician (flautist of Ictus ensemble). He spent quite some years preparing URSONATE, Schwitters's phonetic poetry classic. Its a work demanding unique virtuoso qualities. The text looks like this "fümmsböwötääzääUu pögö". He finally “fümmsed” it out in the summer of 2006 and has since performed it many times.
Chisenhale Art Club's blog
6 - 7 April Brooklyn-based Daniel Linehan makes his London debut with duet Montage for Three and solo Not About Everything:
Montage for Three uses a collection of projected images alongside two dancers, who attempt to reproduce the movement captured in the photographs. By attempting to give life to the static, the images begin to take on a life of their own in a clever manipulation of the viewer’s perspective.
Not About Everything opens with a single body entering the stage and beginning to turn. At first gentle, the turning gradually transforms into a relentless gyratory motion as Linehan takes on multiple simultaneous tasks. Speaking, thinking, reacting and addressing the audience throughout, he creates a dance that is both funny and complex.
