A Performance Premiere of ‘Ways of Water’ and Artist Presentation by Zierle & Carter, Artists and University College Falmouth Lecturers
It is with great pleasure that we write to warmly invite you to our forthcoming showcase performance and networking event at University College Falmouth’s (UCF’s) new Performance Centre on 13 May 2011, by established Cornwall based performance artists Zierle & Carter, aka Alexandra Zierle and Paul Carter – www.zierlecarterliveart.com
Just back from a three month Arts Council funded research and production trip to Canada and the USA, Zierle & Carter will give a unique insight into their experience and work with a presentation on their current 6 month project ‘Through The Heart: Works on Love, Life, and Laughter’ – http://www.throughtheheartperformances.com. Featured will be works made during their trip for exhibitions, at international festivals, and on residencies, such as The Banff Centre in Canada, and in New York with The New York Times acclaimed artist, choreographer, and director of thinkdance Jill Sigman. This will be followed by the premiere of a UCF commissioned site specific, interactive performance and networking event entitled ‘Ways of Water’, that responds to, and celebrates the theme of generative change within Cornwall, and the emergence of a ‘new landscape’. Collectively sewing seeds, bridging spaces, and crossing divides, ‘Ways of Water’ gives an opportunity for dialogue and exchange, and explores the power of communal acts of intent, continuing their current research on love and community building through a shared experience. Both events are free and open to all ages.
Artist Presentation: Studio A, 3.00pm to 4.30pm.
Networking Event: Performance Centre Lobby. An opportunity to meet other practitioners and look around the Performance Centre until 6.30pm. Food will be available during this time in the Koofi Café on campus and from Falfalafel, a hot food stall serving falafels outside The Performance Centre.
Performance: Studio A, 6.30pm to 9.30pm.
If you would like to attend either or both of the events please RSVP to Emily Pye by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
