Nicole Bachmann at Nocturnal Creatures 2021

"For one night only, Whitechapel Gallery and nearby historic, outdoor and unusual spaces in East London are transformed by installations, films, live performances, music, and food experiences.  

Movement and sound by performers coming together and apart, alternates between the screen and in real-life, in along the rims (2020) by Nicole Bachmann. Set in Toynbee Hall’s historic Lecture Hall, the work explores connectedness and communication, through physical exchange and unexpected alliances.

How do we connect, communicate and share information with other human bodies but also the world around us? Filmed in the green spaces of the Hackney Marshes during the release of lockdown in summer 2020, along the rims features three dancers that exchange ideas through movement and sound, touch and song, exploring modes of communication beyond language. The film and performance explore power structures and dominant discourses, creating a space for improvisation and alternative, non-verbal meaning.  

A series of ink drawings made in dialogue with the work, capturing the development and rewriting of the script, will be shown in the adjacent Ashbee Hall."
