SEPT. 19! CLAIRE ELIZABETH BARRATT AND DAVID LINTON, MOTION SCULPTURE WORKSHOP, INSTALLATIONS AND PERFORMANCE!
Posted On September 4, 2014
Interdisciplinary artist, Claire Elizabeth Barratt and audiovisual artist, David Linton visit Salisbury University Downtown Campus on September 19th. They will participate in the downtown plaza’s Third Friday events. Claire Elizabeth Barratt will offer a Motion Sculpture Workshop from 1-4pm at 234 West Main Street (formerly Parker Place.)
Motion Sculpture is an original movement style developed by Barratt, involving similar practices to Tai Chi, Yoga, and Butoh dance. In performance, it is used within the context of “Installation Performance” wherein the performers exist for a set duration as part of an environment. The workshop is free and open to participants 18 and over. All that is required is a curiosity to explore the body as sculpture in time and space. Workshop participants are asked to wear comfortable clothing.
The workshop will culminate in a “Motion Sculpture Movement Installation” on the Salisbury downtown plaza from 5:30-8pm. Workshop participants will be offered an optional opportunity to participate in this installation, entitled “Attack of the Killer Stripey Tubes,” guided by Barratt.
The days’ events will close with an Audiovisual Installation presented by audiovisual artist, David Linton, on the first floor of 234 West Main Street beginning at 7pm. He will be joined by Claire Elizabeth Barratt who will offer a live dance performance within the audiovisual environment at 8pm.
