Ephemeral Artifacts is a non-linear journey through the evolution of jazz and tap.
It celebrates the body as a space of transmission and dance as a defiant act of creating knowledge. Featuring tap artist Travis Knights this work integrates music, video and storytelling. It unravels the body as a site of consequence and celebrates the act of dancing as a form of resistance.
Ephemeral Artifacts is a repertoire production of Ānandam’s choreographed by Brandy Leary. Created in 2017 it exists in different iterations, each with a diverse cast of artists. Since 2017 the work has been shown in gallery, theatre and public space contexts. Ephemeral Artifacts: Travis Knights features magnetic tap artist Travis Knights. This unique collaboration between Leary and Knights offers a multidisciplinary journey that unsettles standard traditions of choreography, improvisation and collective creation.
The performance will be followed by a 30 minutes post-show talk where co-creators Travis Knights and Brandy Leary reflect on the process of making of the piece.
Suitable for all.
Booking for this event will close Monday 17 October, 5pm.
