WINTER FEST 2018: CREATIVE LAB SHARING
with Rosalind masson
Dance House Glasgow’s Creative Labs provide artists with a safe place for courageous artistic experimentation and development, including cross artform working. Each artist works for a week in the studio giving them the practical support to explore ideas, methods and collaborations. At the end of the week artists often share with audiences what they have been working on.
During her Creative Lab Rosalind will be developing the visual and sonic elements of a piece in collaboration with Jer Reid and Rob Jones. Mus Ro Faclan Ann or Before Words is the working title for the development of a dance performance influenced by the landscape, language and culture of the Outer Hebrides, in particular Uibhist a Deas /South Uist. The root of the word choreography comes from the greek, khoreia (chorus or band of dancers) and graphein (to write).
Mus Ro Faclan Ann is an attempt to write or record movement that is in dialogue with a people and place. What can a Gaelic reading of the landscape reveal that otherwise remains hidden? How can the body serve as a medium to that which cannot otherwise be expressed in words?
Join us for a sharing of Rosalind Masson’s latest work after a week long residency as part of Dance House Glasgow’s Winter Fest.
Date: Saturday 13th January
Time: 17:00 – 18:00
