The Earth Will Absolve Me
The Ahhhness of Things (UK/India)
Fri 31 Oct 2014
Figures rise through the earth, searching for worlds lost in slow-dancing tomatoes and beetroot jars.
They are healers of sweat.
Markers of the fall.
They are skinning their dreams beneath carpeted walls.
The Earth Will Absolve Me is a series of installed performances that occur within a landscape of soil, beetroot, tomatoes and carpet fragments.
Breathing in the space between live art, theatre and installation – this work explores beauty, intimacy and tenderness using everyday materials, creating a tableau that examines the ideas of femininity within different cultural contexts. This is a piece about our return to our primal roots.
The Ahhhness of Things is Nihaarika Negi, Lesley Asare, Kayleigh Handley & James Monaghan. They make live art / performance through process driven collaboration between artists of multi-disciplines. They investigate their inter-cultural histories through the use of domestic materials and play with how these can be appropriated to uncover social issues.
