Crawling through Mud –
Commissioned by Newcastle Art Gallery through Catapult Dance Choreographic Hub.
Newcastle Art Gallery
Performance duration: 40 minutes, commencing at approximately 8:00pm
Award-winning Australian choreographer and performer Kristina Chan presents a commissioned work inspired by the seminal 1955 performance Challenging Mud by Kazuo Shiraga.
Writhing in a pile of mud, Shiraga performed Challenging Mud at the Ohara Kaikan Hall in Tokyo, creating a work that was both performance and painting. In this contemporary response piece, Chan continues a dialogue which started over sixty years ago; exploring the relationship between elemental materials and the human body.
This event is supported by the Dobell Exhibition Grant, funded by the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation and managed by Museums & Galleries of NSW.
