Exercise: Les Noces by choreographer Elena Koukoli is a performance/installation that will be presented at The Asylum, in Peckham on Sunday 29th January as part of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance Parallax series.
I will be participating in this event as a sound designer. Following Elena's example, I've worked with recordings of Igor Stravinsky's Les Noces and, after some rather severe editing, created a long soundtrack for the performance.
Further information on the event below the flyer.
Elena Koukoli’s Exercise: Les Noces pushes the limits of performance by interweaving music, dance and visual art. The work translates Bronislava Nijinska’s iconic ballet Les Noces to an installation of ‘ready-made choreographies’: replicated and re-performed artworks, design objects and video clips. Throughout the three hour event, the audience is invited to watch and listen, move around, come and go as they please or even attend a self-defence class. Exercise: Les Noces expands the conventional verges of dance performance, introducing a durational installation that challenges the frames of both theatre and gallery.
4pm-7pm - Admission Free
The Asylum, Caroline Garden’s Chapel, Peckham, London SE15 2SQ
