Dawn Poetics: Caroline Bergvall in conversation with Marina Warner

 

Wednesday 14 September 2016

Carroll / Fletcher, 56-57 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8EQ

 

£5, tickets available here.

 

Artist, writer and performer Caroline Bergvall will perform and present a selection of video documents from earlier works including Ghost Cargo (2011) and Drift (2014) before introducing her performance Ragadawn (2016). Ragadawn, Caroline's much anticipated new work, is a sunrise performance that explores the crossing of boundaries and altered states of being through vocal composition, rhythmical speech patterns and recorded languages. Following the screening and presentation, Caroline will be joined by Professor Marina Warner to talk about dawn poetics, metamorphosis, liminality, gendering, and darkness and light.

 

Ragadawn (2016) will premiere in the UK as a one-off performance at the Estuary Festival on Sunday 18 September 2016 at 6:38am. The work is co-produced by Metal, Southend-on-Sea, and Festival de la Batie, Geneva. Ragadawn will embark on an international tour in 2017 and is supported by Ville de Genève, Etat de Genève, Fondation Wilsdorf, Fondation Göhner and Royal Norwegian Embassy, London.

 

This event is part of the series Experimental Writing @ Carroll / Fletcher, hosted by the Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture in collaboration with Carroll / Fletcher gallery. For more information about the event, please contact Georgina Colby at g.colby@westminster.ac.uk.
