Dawn by Seren Marimba
Presented by the Performance Research Group
Please note the revised date for this event, which has had to be rescheduled from May due to unforeseen circumstances.
Who is she that lurks between time.
Too early! Too late?
Does her magic ring out down empty streets?
like joy ridden motors.
Or does she sit in and wait.
In the space between worlds; between life and death, night and day; between our realm and another.
Amongst the mystical and the mundane,
will Dawn break.
DAWN will be a work in progress sharing from recent graduate from MA Contemporary Performance Seren Marimba. The piece will mark the culmination of a two week experimental practice in which Seren will create content everyday at dawn. The piece will take form from what is created at these daybreak intervals and will explore themes of time, duality and mysticism. This work-in-progress performance will be followed by a Q&A with the artist exploring the process hosted by a member of the Performance Research Group.
Please book your free tickets on Eventbrite.
Seren is a Manchester-based interdisciplinary performance artist/maker. She explores history and popular culture through movement and character. She combines elements of contemporary circus, dance and physical theatre and draws inspiration from the bold and beautiful characters she meets and has known. Specifically amongst the marginalised or alternative communities she connects with.
