Please join us at TAP for a series of events hosted by studio artists and members.
Feast of Fools takes its name from the medieval festival when all class distinctions were abolished and laws that normally governed sensible behaviour were virtually suspended. The carnival celebrated a brief social revolution, in which barriers were lost and playfulness was encouraged throughout the community regardless of status.
Film Night: 14th May 7-9pm A selection of short videos, snapshots and clips chosen by TAP studio artists.
Gallery Brunch: 29yj May 11am Join us on Sunday morning for Brunch in the gallery where artists have been working on material and testing ideas for the forthcoming exhibition. No booking required for brunch.
At 1pm there Sophia Simensky will host 'Research Lab: Between Sensing and Feeling'. The lab is a space to share some thoughts and movement exercises that could be useful to spatial design, scenographers and visual artist. The workshop will include exercises and scores from dance and performance practice, to perform together; tools for listening and attuning the senses and exploring the spectrum between sensing and feeling. How might some of these help to think more intuitively about space and materials, articulate material encounters, or have a more intimate or empathetic exchange?
This Lab is open to anyone, regardless of your practice or background, and flexible depending on peoples interests.
Exhibition preview with guest’s Cherry Scott and T-Bitch: 28th May 6 - 10pm New work, collaborations and performances from TAP Studio artists.
T-bitch is a glorious musical cocktail, born from minds that were fed up being defined by their gender and sterile music ruling the charts. T-bitch are part transvestite punk, part Riot Grrrl, part laugh your knickers off sing along. The ethos is 'Do it', no matter how good you think you aren't and 'If your not sure, don't ask' because nothing matters more than this moment right now.
Cherry Scott aka 'Mouth of the South' is a poet who will be sharing new material.
