Produced by Helen Caddick
Saturday 18th August: 19:00 – 19:35
Amphora is inspired by the astonishing art and poetry of Dadaist Jean Arp and his love for the artist-dancer Sophie Taeuber, his collaborator and muse. After Sophie’s death, Arp tore up and reassembled some of their work so that he could once again create with her. Through dazzling music, magical dance and stunning costume, Amphora evokes the incandescence of Arp and Taueber’s relationship and its poignant conclusion.
A screening of ‘Amphora…the making of’ by Phil Miller, a short film giving insights into the creation of the work, will precede the performance.
