As far a live events go you can’t do any better than this, live art.
Ecstatic, the free event taking place on this Friday 6th (7-10pm) at Bloc, Eyre Street, challenges you to explore all things human through the medium of the body, identity and play.
The event will feature live artists including: David Birchall, Robin Close, Alice Malseed, David McNab, Rebekka Platt and Nicola Singh.
Robin Close, performing home turf, will be showcasing his new work combining his interests in the extremities of the human condition and his love of disco music.
David McNab, also from Sheffield, is interestingly currently making models and drawings around notions of the lotus with a thousand petals and Botticelli’s souls floating in a circle in Dante’s Paradise. He will develop these themes through performance, and hopes to wordlessly bring them to life.
Alice Malseed and her showcase Framed Narrative, implores the audience to listen whilst she explores her own psychology: “I want you to know about me. The people who I’ve met have made me this way. How will you define me? Come along and listen to me unravelling the layers”.
Ecstatic is part of From West to North to East to South and Back, a cross-regional events programme.
