EXCLUSIVE: Live performance of ‘Awakening’ by James Moore

Screenshot from ‘Awakening’ by James Moore.

FREE – Tuesday 3rd March – 5:30pm – Viewer discretion advised.

As part of our current exhibition, DRIFT by 2nd year BA (Hons) Photographic Art students from the University of South Wales, we will be hosting a performance by artist James Moore of his piece AWAKENING which features in the show.

The exhibition DRIFT showcases artwork produced as a result of a site-specific brief responding to ‘The RIver’, where they have integrated themselves within the local community, each individually responding and creating a diverse range of personal and explorative art whose themes address local heritage, community, and the power of the river.

This performance is a controlled exercise of immersion in water, as a representation of a fear of drowning. The artist will submerge his head into the bowl of water until he is out of air. He will do this until he cannot continue. The performance projects him into the reality of his fear – to overcome it he must attempt to confront it. Viewer discretion is advised as the performance may include scenes some viewers find upsetting.

The exhibition continues until Thursday 5th March 2015, and is open between 10am and 4pm daily.
For more information about the exhibition DRIFT and to contact the artists, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/events/1589111567969857

FREE – SATURDAY 28th FEBRUARY
Doors 7:30pm – Performance 8:00pm (Booking essential)

Of Mice and Men tells the story of George Milton and Lenny Small, two very different men bound together by providence. Set against the backdrop of the American Great Depression, our hapless protagonists hatch a plan to leave their life of poverty behind and start anew. It seems so simple, and perhaps that’s what is so beautiful about it, but little do they know, fate still has a hand to play.

Booking essential – for tickets and press enquiries, please contact:  tinshedtheatre@gmx.com
