Dirty Dancing at Static

If, like me, you enjoy the wacky, left of field performances then get along to Static in Roscoe Lane on Saturday or Sunday night for the evenings of music, dance and installation entitled SOIL in STATIC. But don’t wear your best shoes! There are literally heaps of soil all over the gallery floor, the dancers spread it around or roll about in it while singers and musicians perform.
The major part is called ‘Dances through Topological Space’ and is choreographed, designed, produced and performed by LIPA students: Sarah Charles, Claire Heffernan, Katy Jones, Nikki Irving, Jo Jeffries, Sunniva Skorve, Katie Sunderalingam, Virginia Taylor and Diane Tomasi. There’s also a bit of opera sung by Sarah Helsdy-Hughes and the evening finishes with live music from 3 bands: Citizen, Escapist and The Kambo Trio. It starts at the Grapes pub in Roscoe St before moving on to Static. I missed the first hour last night so will be going back again to see the whole thing. An excellent collaboration between Static and LIPA, more please.
