Saturday 23 October
7pm – 8pm
Join us for a special late night opening on Saturday 23 October, as we welcome Kelly Quigley and Majella Biernat to Void Gallery. Kelly and Majella will respond to our current exhibition Beating a Retreat, Cevdet Erek through dance.
They will create an instantaneous composition in relation to the sound score in the exhibition, with the intention of ‘finding space’ from various perspectives such as architecturally or melodically to contrast with the density of the sound. Our opening hours will be extended until 8pm.
Kelly is an ensemble member of Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company and Majella is a member Body Wisdom, Echo Echo’s dance and movement project for people aged 50+.
