TATE DEBUTS ONLINE PERFORMANCE RESILIENT RESPONSES
This premiere is a chance to view new work from some of the most intriguing artists working in performance, dance, and music now. This fresh and relevant material was performed live to camera in the empty tanks during lockdown. Join artists Thomas Heyes, Ekin Bernay and Rowdy SS with special guest Rebecca Bellantoni, as they respond through movement, sound and spoken word. Their rich multi-sensory responses encourage us to consider what it means to be human and resilient. Each artist explores ideas around identity, isolation, alienation, and human resilience amidst a pandemic. These themes thread through much of Bruce Nauman’s work yet take on deeper resonance and relevance at this moment in time. Learn more.
