Stillpoint: Performance for One
6 December 2019, 13:00 to 16:00
Somerset House East Wing
Stillpoint explores the choreography of listening: how we listen with the body and mind as well as the ears, and how we visualise space and texture through sound. This is an immersive piece for an audience of one person. Working between movement and stillness, sound and silence, this is a visceral and sometimes delicate exploration of the relationship between inner and outer worlds, and the power of hearing to orientate and disorientate.
Stillpoint will be performed on the afternoon of Friday 6 December between 13.00 and 16.00 in Somerset House East Wing. Each performance will be for one person only and will last 10 minutes. Please note participants will be asked to wear a blindfold for the duration of the performance.
To sign up for a performance slot, please email Tabatha Andrews at: email@example.com.
Please indicate your preferred time slot; these start at 13.00 and run every 15 mins thereafter until 16:00. The performance is limited to 12 slots in total.
The project team will reply to confirm your time slot and provide further information about the performance, including details of location and arrival time.
Stillpoint is part of Call and Response, a collaboration between Andrea Streit at King’s College London’s Centre for Craniofacial & Regenerative Biology and Tabatha Andrews. The collaboration is part of the Arts in Dentistry Innovation Programme.
About the team
Tabatha Andrews is an artist whose work explores how we bypass language to engage with the world through our senses. Working with sculpture, installation and a wide range of communities, she is interested in how we access memory and the process of listening. Earlier this year she showed in SPARE PARTS: Rethinking Human Repair at Science Gallery London and collaborated with the composer Charlotte Harding and opera singer Victoria Oruwari on Antiphon, a work for voice and a staircase.
Andrea Streit is a leading scientist in ear developmental biology. Her research focuses on the molecular mechanisms that define ear progenitors, and how this knowledge can be used for repair of degenerating cells in the damaged or ageing ear. She is Professor of Developmental Neurobiology in the Centre for Craniofacial & Regenerative Biology at King’s Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences.
Katrina Brown is a UK/NL-based choreographer with a hybrid practice across movement, drawing and still-and-moving image. Her work is presented in gallery-like situations, theatre spaces and site locations as well as on the artist-page. She produces material and digital documents as extensions of live work, of drawing residues and processual activities of moving, drawing, sensing, thinking.
