Collaborate/k?‘lab?re?t: Käfig and Lilly Vasil: Improvised Performance

13 March 2019


Wednesday, 13 March
6.00 – 8.00pm

Taking Beatrice Gibson’s films as inspiration, the performers/artists of Käfig (a project of expanded and experimental sculptural theatre) and Lilly Vasil (musician/artist from the Hightown Pirates band) will respond to her two films and “bounce off” each other through movements, sounds, objects, images to create an abstract and entirely new narrative that develops in spontaneous and intuitive ways.

Part of a programme of events hosted by this year's project Testbed: Collaborate/kəˈlabəreɪt.

Käfig an unscripted sculptural play that evolves using chance methods and material improvisations has been conceived by Nadia Berri and is further developed with Jade/Superbat Wilford. Read more

Nadia Berri: At the core of Nadia Berri’s practice is play, improvisation and collaboration. Working across dance, film, sound, objects/material and drawing, she grows temporary spaces in which collective, sculptural narratives emerge.

Jade/ SuperBat Wilford is a multidisciplinary artist across performance, poetry and drawing. She is interested in improvised methods of working; using the unknown as an opportunity for exploration.

Jonathan Hallam is a multidisciplinary artist working in the intersection between art, fashion, image making and moving image. His relationship to his subjects is a key element to his work.

Haraldur Agustsson is the guitarist of the amazing Santa Semeli and the Monks as well as actor/ performer extraordinaire.

Lilly Vasil’s practice crosses art and music making, tackling societal views on poverty, politics and social stigma in the UK, specifically North London. Performing on stage, or at protests, her interest in punk culture, kitsch and retro blur the lines of high and low art. Having learned music by ear, narrative and improvisation is prominent in both her practices.
