Performance: Aniela Piasecka: Passé

Tue 19 Feb, 8–8.20p. Free. Book via Eventbrite

In this newly commissioned movement performance Aniela Piasecka (STASIS, Proudfoot & Piasecka) explores the discovery of the collective from the exploration and expression of the individual. An evocative, personal work that turns inward and then reaches out, this performance combines personal memories with historical events, and scraps of popular culture. Francis Dosoo’s accompanying soundscape provides a soundtrack of a life lived from 1992 to 2019, with visual contributions by artist Joanne Dawson.

This event is commissioned by students as part of the MScR in Collections and Curating Practices at Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh).
