Body of Light

22 Oct

Darren Pritchard – Body of Light


Presented by STUN during Black Gold Arts Festival + Word of Warning 

Body of Light by Darren Pritchard [Marcel Lenormand, Designer]

A seamless landscape of flowing image, where graphics bend effortlessly around the arcs of a live dancer. A very human journey into the world of technology.

Take one finely tuned body, one home-gaming device and three creative minds, mix vigorously and see what happens. The result: a seamless landscape of flowing imagery, where the body’s movements translate into sweeping brushstrokes, and the boundaries of flesh and pixel blur into one.

NEW £5 ticket price… book below for this 30 minute performance.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Supported by hÅb, STUN, Dance Manchester, Guernsey Arts Commission, Journey Through Time.

Presented during Black Gold Arts Festival, celebrating the success of culturally diverse performances developed in partnership with Sustained Theatre Up North [STUN].

Black Gold Arts Festival features recent work by black artists from the North developed through Manchester’s STUN Studio and produced around the city. All the shows are tour-ready, have been enthusiastically received by audiences and critics alike, and have strong workshop and engagement packages.

Manchester is rich in culturally diverse performing arts talent and STUN has been increasingly important in making sure that talent has the space to experiment and thrive. Besides celebrating this, STUN also wants to support and bring new BAME talent forward. Black Gold is a big arts party festival with just a sample of awards-nominated and award-winning artists, and a seed commission for a culturally diverse newcomer. To give folks even more reason to celebrate, STUN is announcing £2,000 commission for a new work by a BAME Northern performance practitioner.

For the first Black Gold Arts Festival, don’t miss shows by four outstanding Mancunians: 

Alaska, by Cheryl Martin; Body of Light by Darren Pritchard; I Wish I Had A Moustache by Keisha Thomson; Amsterdam by Chanje Kunda.
