Curate the Campus 2013: Stilled

Inspired by the scientific process of X-ray crystallography, Fevered Sleep’s most delicate piece for adults weaves together dance, light, music and photography to create a meditative cross-artform event exploring perception, movement and stillness.

Accompanied by a live sound and light score, Stilled is performed for both for a human audience and for a bank of silent, all-seeing pinhole cameras. Alongside the performance, images from the cameras are slowly exhibited within the space. Each image bears witness to dances that have already been and gone, durations of time captured in a single image.

The resulting images will then be exhibited in a new location on campus - details tbc.

In a world which is saturated with photographs, and in which time has become a most precious commodity, Stilled might remind us of the benefits and pleasures of remaining still, of moving slowly, and of really looking, really watching and really trying to see.

STILLED TAKES PLACE IN THE NUFFIELD THEATRE AND IS FREE. YOU CAN COME AND GO, AND STAY AS LONG AS YOU LIKE.

THURSDAY 2 MAY: 5PM-8PM.
FRIDAY 3 MAY: 11AM-6PM
