untitled: holy hiatus 6
Small World Theatre
22nd May 2013, 4pm - 10.15pm
This 6-hour performative event explores how liminal space is created, experienced and shared, using repetitions of a phrase of movement and a 13th century song.
‘there is no path; we make the path by walking’ Antonio Machado
Small World Theatre presents 'untitled: holy hiatus 5' an annual event with collaborating artists:
Each event includes live vocal performance and playback of the previous year’s recording; this process amplifies the acoustic response of the space which slowly overwhelms the earlier recordings to form an extraordinary evolving soundscape.
Maura Hazelden was commissioned by Ruth Jones in 2008 to create a work for Holy Hiatus: a series of artworks and a symposium. In collaboration with Lou Laurens she created a six hour event using repetition and stillness in the Small World Centre, then newly completed. untitled: holy hiatus is an annual ritual. This will the sixth year of the event.
A satellite exhibition of work from previous years will take place in the building during the evening.
Lou Laurens has an MA in Sonic Art. She trained as a singer, and developed her vocal practice with leading teachers and performers, many within the arena of post-dramatic theatre; she also trained in Deep Listening techniques with Pauline Oliveros. Her practice includes solo and collaborative vocal performance, composition, and curation/facilitation. She teaches voice and leads community choirs. Her work explores relationships and encounters between individuals, communities, languages, and places.
