Atma Dance Mayuri Boonham presented ERHEBUNG, a Dance-Sculpture-Sonic Art Installation
New classical Indian dance met abstract sculpture in Erhebung – a collaboration between Atma Dance’s Artistic Director Mayuri Boonham and sculptor Jeff Lowe. Boonham’s increasing abstraction of the dancers’ figures created an expressive boundary with Lowe’s striking sculpture - a place where form and abstraction merge. Every second of choreography, every viewpoint of the relationship between the sculpture and the dancers became a flowing living sculpture. Erhebung is a dance-sonic-sculpture installation with two dancers. Inspired by T.S. Eliot’s Burnt Norton, the work is devised in collaboration with a team of international artists that include the American sound artist Bill Fontana and costume designer Moritz Junge from Germany. Erhebung will tour museums and exhibition spaces over 2013/14.
Choreography: Mayuri Boonham / Sculpture: Jeff Lowe / Sound Art: Bill Fontana / Costumes: Moritz Junge / Performers: Shreya Kumar & Hian Ruth Voon
- Fri 17 May: Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum, Bournemouth
- Sat 18 May: The Late Shows at the Great North Museum, Newcastle.
- Fri 31 May - Sun 2 June: Rich Mix, London
Erhebung is funded by the Arts Council of England and co-commissioned by Pavilion Dance South West and GemArts.
