Singular Dance Performance: 12-5pm & Artist Talk: 3-4pm.
To mark the final week of her current solo exhibition, Alternative to Power, at The New Art Gallery Walsall, sculptor Eva Rothschild has invited choreographer Joe Moran to present Singular, a durational dance work that will be performed by dancers Katye Coe and Hilary Stainsby within her exhibition.
The performance will feature costumes by Rothschild and artist Ilsa Colsell. Moran’s choreographic work shares many concerns with Rothschild’s approach to sculpture, which will provide a focus for a free public talk as part of the day.
Rothschild and Moran’s first collaborative experiment, A Setup took place in 2015 for the inaugural Block Universe festival and fig-2 programme at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London.
