Drawing in Embrace


Buenos Aires Social Club. Newlyn Art Gallery 2008

In this event, the couples had wire structures attached to their tango shoes which acted as holders for chalk or charcoal. This enabled the pattern of their movement to be sketched out on large sheets of paper. The clip above is from video generated from this event, which was edited overnight and screened in the gallery the next day. 

Performers: Kate Wilson and Claire Conboye

Performance concept and production: Amanda Lorens and John Keys
