Previously at the ICA - Events
25 Jun 2011
You’re invited to a casting session. Head to the ICA bar anytime between 2pm and 10pm on Saturday 25 June and sign up to experience a unique participatory occasion in the Regency Box in the ICA Theatre. Each ‘session’ lasts 10 – 45 minutes with any number from 1 to 30 people taking part (groups welcome). Leading the audition are Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan). They have performed ‘sessions’ at Kunsthalle Basel during the Museumnacht 2010 and at the Project Arts Centre in Dublin and bring CASTER* to the ICA in response to Pablo Bronstein’s gallery installation Tragic Stage. CASTER* turns the chorographical gaze featured in Bronstein’s Tragic Stage on you, the visitor.
No qualifications or dance experience are required. Suitable for those over 12 years old.
Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan) take choreography into the context of fine art and have presented previously in the UK as part of Tate Modern’s Living Currency (2008) and Paris Calling (2009). They have completed a long term residency at CAC Brétigny in France.
CASTER* is generously supported by Institut Français du Royaume-Uni.
