A memento or souvenir is a reminder of an ephemeral but significant engagement with a place
Souvenir is the title for a new site – dance project directed by choreographer Virginia Farman.
Souvenir responds to the COVID-19 shutdown of rehearsal studios and communal gatherings by using audio-recordings to direct dancers into a physical engagement with a range of outdoor sites. At various points during the dance, dancers were asked to video themselves. With the material generated, four short videos have been created that capture an intimate dialogue between internal/external landscapes.
Virginia Farman will provide an introduction to accompany the screening of the four videos. Viewing is free but must be booked as capacity is limited to five per 20 minute showing.
