If you are near the North East of the UK this week come to mima as the second of the situation Unit commissions, curated in collaboration with the Alternative Art College.
We have a series of performance workshops lead by Harold Offeh called choreograph me.
First performance today between 1-2pm
Situation Unit: Choreograph Me
We are looking for people to come and work with artist Harold Offeh to shape a new work that explores movement and the dance traditions of different cultures.
Participants will be invited to develop a series of instructions for Harold that will come together to form a collectively choreographed work. By offering his body as a material to be experimented with and positioned Harold hopes to explore the question of how an artist can be used and made useful. The workshops will culminate in a public event where Harold will perform the movements developed throughout the week.
No experience is required. You can come to one or all of the workshops and the group are welcome to make the movements or simply instruct Harold. We hope that participants will join us for the public presentation which will be followed by an informal bring-a-dish dinner.
