Saturday 20 – Sunday 21 May 2017
11am – 6pm
New performance by Juri Nishi in collaboration with Bittersuite as part of the Open Senses Weekend.
Umwelten (Surroundings) is a sensorial journey of choreographed voices, sounds, touch and movements inside a secret space at the Royal Academy of Arts. It heightens our awareness to change the way we perceive and embody the world around us. Each audience member is invited to construct their own imagined space through a landscape of poetry inspired by the myths and memories of the Burlington House.
The immersive performance enquires into our haptic and phenomenological experience of architecture through the interplay of presence and absence, the sensed and the imagined.
Susie Browning, Emma Laird Craig, Amy Harris, Zara Jayne, Madeleine Jonsson, Juri Nishi, Amy Neilson Smith
