Drawn to Dance

Drawing to dance

July 17th 2009

A performance devised from a workshop between visual artists Carla Conte, Shehnoor Ahmed and Gina Field; Kathak dancer Manuela Benini and sound artist Fari Bradley. The resulting piece was an improvised drawing performance which was a response to the choreographed movement of the dancer, a composition of music and the dimentions of the paper canvas frames. The piece was performed live at Asia electronica and evening of performance, art, installations and music. The project was funded by RISC and OHOS. We are hoping to develop this idea of drawing to dance, exploring futher materials, mediums and narrative between the three performers.
