Join dance artists Josie Archer and Kosta Bogoievski as they present ARC, a movement response to ‘Drawing Room’ by Aaron Paterson, Sarosh Mulla and Marian Macken. ARC refers directly to the repetitive motion of ‘Drawing Machine’, which paces our Ō Papa Mair Gallery floor. Archer and Bogoievski, in costumes designed by Steven Junil Park, will be conducted by the mechanical arm as they perform an orchestrated improvisation in cyclic rhythm with the machine.
Thursday 28 January
Performance begins at 8pm and runs for 1 hour, doors open at 7:30pm
Free! Koha on entry is appreciated
