[the gathering…the chewing] Geoff, Gill plus Walt Shaw are showing our latest 10 mins film with freely improvised soundtrack and performance drawing
in a 12 hours live-streamed multimedia performance and video screening this Saturday – organised by two DIY artspaces run out of Orlando and Philadelphia – ours is on at 9pm (BST London time)
See www.herethere.art. Note : times on the website are in EAST US time which is five hours behind BST
New audio-visual production – Daily into the Blue – from Geoff Bright and Gill Whiteley [the gathering…the chewing] plus our long-time collaborator, Walt Shaw – freely improvised soundscape produced under lockdown conditions and at a distance. Premiered on Saturday 27 March 2021 in Here, There, Everywhere at AC Institute, New York. See here….
Just looking back to this project – Pan-demonium – created in 2009, first staged at the AC Institute in New York…consisting of a multimedia exhibition and accompanying publication exploring the notion of ‘pan-demons’, ‘pan-demics’ and all things ‘pan’ in the light of the global political, ecological and economic situation and viral forces of ‘contagion’ at the time….the notion of the pandemic was merely metaphorical then… how prescient it seems now…
This Sunday’s Mopomoso online TV Channel improvisation session – Matriarchal Mopomoso – is dedicated to women in improvisation – and it will include the third lockdown video from Les Petroleuses ( Lyn Hodnett and Gill Whiteley) – as it happens, celebrating 150 years since the 1871 Paris Commune!
Join us ‘unruly women’ improvisers on the barricades….
Also see bricolagekitchen’s Resonating Women of the Paris Commune project – follow it over the next ten weeks, naming and honouring ten women communards…
