Music in the Galleries X Family and Friends Sunday: Brain-Inspired Dance

24 March 2019 | 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Music in the Galleries X Family and Friends Sunday
24 March| 2-4 PM
Brain-Inspired Dance, choreographed by Killian Manning

Inspired by the contemporary images of the brain featured in The Beautiful Brain, SITES Choreographer Killian Manning has planned an interactive afternoon of site-specific, art-inspired dance in the galleries. Visitors of all ages will be invited to join five dancers in movement and dance in response to the art on view. This family-friendly event is a cross-over between our popular Music in the Galleries series and Family and Friends Sunday.

Manning’s dance is set to music by Spanish composers contemporaneous with Cajal, as well as contemporary Spanish works. She also incorporates texts from Cajal’s dream journals.

2PM: Dance performance
2:30 PM: Family and Friends participatory dance
3:30 PM: Dance Performance

This is the second of two performances choreographed by Manning in connection with The Beautiful Brain. Join us on 17 February for the first performance, this time inspired by the drawings of Santiago Ramon y Cajal featured in the exhibition.

Part of the SITES 2018-2019 series of experimental art and performances.
