||Katherine Atkinson responds and performs|
Sunday 18 August 2013 at 12.00noon
When Katherine Atkinson performs, her violin is an extension of her physical self, another part of her body as well as an extension of her voice. Inspired by physical theatre, Atkinson uses strong visual images as part of her performance, her theatre training and performance then informs how she plays with the violin.
This Sunday at 12.00 noon Katherine Atkinson responds to LFTT Library, the group exhibition Things in Translation: The Legs Foundation and the interior of the building, the former Franciscan Church, now Highlanes Gallery.
Katherine says of her practice "I am interested in testing performance concepts in public spaces. I am fascinated by the ways in which audiences respond to public performances, and I have researched this in both my performance work and through academic research."
This event is free, booking advised by telephoning the gallery or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org;
Remember, Highlanes Gallery is open this Sunday from 10.00am. Also on Sunday, as part of the Welcome to Drogheda project you can catch artist Fergal McCarthy in conversation with local luminary Cara Konig-Brock of Beaulieu House & Gardens from 10.00am-10.30am, and later at 1.00pm join Fergal on his off-beat walking tour of Drogheda.
