Takeover 2018: Micro-Commissions Sharing

Friday 3 August
Venue 2
From £0.00
to £3.00
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member

Rich Mix Micro-Commission is a pilot artist development programme for east London based artists aged 16-25. With access to free rehearsal space, support from our producers and artistic mentors and a small pot of money, we invited artists to explore some of the ideas without prescribing a set outcome of producing a complete show.

The Micro-Commissions Sharing evening will be an opportunity for the artists to test some of the ideas they’ve been working on in an informal and supportive environment. We are hoping to start a conversation about what it means to make locally rooted work, and how the community feel part of the creative process.

The work by Rich Mix Micro-Commission artists span live art, performance and collaborative devising, exploring the following ideas:

Does London make us sick? Resilience and endurance of the urban body.
What if the Migration Boom never happened?
A look at East London through the eyes of the people who live(d) there.

The works include...

‘What if * never happened?’ by Loop’n’Link
During the Loop’n’Link Project, a team of performers, scenic designers, musicians, costume and props designers will devise and create a piece of theatre from scratch around the topic of Migration in East London.

‘London is Vomit’ by Rosie Vincent
This piece explores the sickness of the city. This live art performance and exhibition celebrates the resilience and endurance of the urban body whilst questioning its happiness.

Cameron Holleran and Rachel Cleverly
A look at East London through the eyes of the people who live(d) there. The market seller, the financier, the trade unionist to name a few. Theirs are the stories which have shaped the culture and the conversation. Think Canterbury tales but shorter.
