Students host performance art at Tate LiverpoolMonday 30 January 2017
Two MA Creative Practice students and a group of first year BA Dance students have partnered with Tate Liverpool to deliver a FREE interactive performance for the public.
Colour Me Vivid will run from Sunday 5th - Saturday 11th February in the first floor of the art gallery and focuses on emotional responses to colour.
Using coloured balls, the audience will trigger cues to the performance and guide the dancers in their installation.
The performance draws inspiration from performance artists such as Yoko Ono, Anish Kapoor and Marina Abromovic, and was inspired by a group brainstorming event during a field trip to Plas Caerdeon.
Bridget Waters, who is one of the MA students behind the concept, said: “Such an opportunity affords an excellent chance to work with a high-profile organisation with an international reputation, and first-hand experience of the process of developing a working model of a public-facing event. This will be valuable experience to have as an achievement whilst at university.”
The collaboration with the gallery is part of Tate Exchange - an open experiment run by Tate Liverpool. It’s an ongoing programme of events developed by artists, practitioners, and associates, both within and beyond the arts sector, aimed at building a dialogue around art, society, and the wider issues facing society today.
Daily half-hour performances will be held at 10:30am, 11:30am, 1pm and 2.30pm.
