The Nantes School of Art performed at the Biennale twice – ending their time in the UK with a surprise second performance in Whitstable Labour Club. The humour, sensitivity, and courage of the students in 2016 has led to this new collaborative work, a 40-minute performance in the form of a conference/cabaret.
The performance has been developed at the art school through experimental workshops. It is based on a previous performance by Georgia Nelson, which had three communicating elements on the stage; Georgia herself, a projected film and three female figures. For this new performance, the group have re-written the work, in which art history meets and collides with dance, music, autobiographical readings, poetry, drawing and silence.
Performing are Georgia Nelson, Daniel Perrier and five students from The Nantes School of Art, France.
