Following their residency at Towner Gallery, Jean Abreu and Naishi Wang will be sharing a work in progress performance of their new international collaboration, Deciphers (working title).
Deciphers brings together choreographers Jean Abreu and Naishi Wang in a new international collaboration exploring UK/Canada and Brazil/China cultural references related to poetry and vocal traditions of folk music. This cultural exchange will create a powerful physical journey and performance that demonstrates how the body can be used as an extraordinary tool of linguistic expression.
This event will feature a short dance excerpt, followed by a Q&A with the choreographers.
Suitable for all.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5.00pm, Friday 22 July.
See Jean Abreu and guests in conversation at Towner on Saturday 23 July. More information here.
