(each performance will last between 20 and 30 minutes)
Edge of Chaos is a multi-media performance using improvisation to explore how different media can interact and stimulate each other. Previous performances (there have been 14 so far) have been well received. The line-up is flexible and can consist of musicians, dancers, artists, poets and other creative practitioners. For this performance we are 3 musicians/painters and a computer.
Audience members will be invited to participate either with a paintbrush to add to the canvass being created or to dance, sing, recite poetry… whatever ‘feels right’ in the moment.
We aim to create a friendly, supportive, fun atmosphere suitable for all ages to either just watch and enjoy, or to join in if the urge takes you.
“Each improvisation takes on a life of its own. There is no score but performers are encouraged to interconnect across the media and to maintain the performance in the area between stasis and chaos i.e. at the edge of chaos – where creativity and life come into being”.
Ric White Saxophone, Flute and electronic wizardry.
Rob Bee Piano Sax and paintbrush.
Serenity Sam Percussion, movement and beauty!
‘Edge of Chaos’ Paintings on both paper and canvas will be for sale at the venue throughout the Art Trail event.
“Audiences will be entertained by concurrent media events and spontaneous creativity plus the potentially profound experience of witnessing a work evolve and reach fruition. They can expect to observe how a complex adaptive network (the performers) moves between stability and chaos and through spontaneous collaboration produces moments of beauty, intensity and value”.
