Norrlandsoperan 28 of August, Umea

Överraskande, varierad, humoristisk och dunderskön
– höstens danssäsong på NorrlandsOperan!

Vi öppnar med det västerbottniska danskompaniet Nomo Daco. En föreställning med hembygdston – cykelvägarna, torrkylan, tystnaden och tjälskotten i Västerbotten.

Föreställningen inleds med en introduktion och visning av en konstfilm av Ella Bertilsson i B-salen. Där kan du även se en fotoutställning av Daniel Persson som skildrar det västerbottniska landskapet.

Corbet Place, London: Sat 29th August 2009, 6.30pm till late

Piplotti Rist’s pioneering video work has been aspirational for a generation of emerging artists. This event will screen a selection of these artists alongside Rist’s (Absolutions) Pipilotti’s Mistakes. Her influence is reflected in the concept of Visual Deflections, a homage to her use of disjuncture and distortion

The idea of Visual Deflections infers the interruption of the image through distortions of time, movement, light and space. It may also suggest a manipulation of assumptions and identifications that reverberate between the spectator and screen

The works will be shown as a screening from 6.30 Sat, and video installation will continue until Sun 11pm. The venue, Corbet Place , is part of the The Old Truman Brewery at the heart of Shoreditch’s vibrant creative scene. The brickwork of the club provides a stripped back aesthetic for the screening, which will be followed by music curated by Back to the Wood

Artists: Piplotti Rist, Clint Enns, Ted Sonnenschein, Tessa Garland, Katherine Nolan , Eleanor Lawler, Jonathan Gilhooly, Jan Hakon Erichsen, Ciara Scanlan, Victoria Melody, Anders Weberg, Theo Tagholm,Lisa Flynn, Hillary Williams, Mathew Guillford , Alan Magee, Jeremy Newman, Saskia Vermeulen, Angelo Picozzi , Liam Herne, Sarah Breen,Ella Bertilsson , Lia Chavez.
