The Experimental Library is a series of Rooms.
Each Room in The Experimental Library houses ‘events’ in response to the work of a specific radical creator.
The series will create a space for reading, objects, dance, music making, and dialogue, and will coincide with a publication of further responses to the artist.
The second room is Octavia E. Butler.
The concert is a series of responses to Octavia E. Butler:
On Yee Lo
The publication will include contributions by:
Is a Paris-based dancer and choreographer. Her work researches the different ways that time and space can inform each other, through the practice of dance and choreography, bending from alloy to discord, dialectic to pure process, autonomy to synergy. This research applies in particular to the relation between sound and movement, with slowness in particular - as a means of stretching time through its multiple possibilities - serving as an important tool.
Ute Kanngiesser has played cello since early childhood, and for more than a decade, has only played unscripted, improvised music - solo and in collaboration with other musicians and composers in London and internationally. An important part of her work has developed in relationship to other art forms such as writing, dance, film, and site specific performance. More recently, she has begun to experiment with open form compositions, writing semi-graphic scores as a way of recording music, that can be retrieved later on and in new ways.
Recent collaborations have been with Evie Ward, Daniel Blumberg, Billy Steiger, Tom Wheatley, Crystabel Riley, Seymour Wright, Paul Abbott, Keira Greene, John Butcher, Eddie Prévost and Jennifer Allum.
