Music in the Galleries: Cajal-Inspired Dance

17 February 2019 | 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Music in the Galleries
17 February | 2-4 PM
Cajal-Inspired Dance, choreographed by
Killian Manning

Inspired by the drawings of Santiago Ramon y Cajal featured in The Beautiful Brain, SITES Choreographer Killian Manning has planned an afternoon performance of site-specific, art-inspired dance in the galleries with five dancers. Manning has set her dance to music by composers working in Spain at the same time as Cajal (Falla, Turina, and Albeniz), as well as contemporary Spanish composers Jose Maria Sanchez Verdu and Ramon Lazkano. The piece also incorporates texts from Cajal’s dream journals.

Performances at 2:00, 2:45, and 3:30 PM

This is the first of two performances choreographed by Manning in connection with The Beautiful Brain. Join us on 24 March for second performance, this time inspired by the contemporary images featured in the exhibition.

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