In November 2016, artistic directors and curators Roya Sachs and Mafalda Millies presented Virtually There: A performance inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet, with choreography by iconic “punk ballerina” Karole Armitage; costumes by the renowned Brazilian designers the Campana Brothers; staging by Whitney Biennial artists Kate Gilmore and Heather Rowe; music by underground French composer Charles Derenne; and creative production by technology innovators MATTE Projects.
Come To Bed! explored the theme of communication in the sphere of the bed, a lieu that hosts a third of our lives. The all female show, curated by Roya Sachs, focused on three sectors of communication that bring to play the different usages of the bed, from pillow talk, and self reflection, to technology with our need to stay connected. The installations and performance reoriented ideas of time and space, by recreating the most intimate space of all, but in a gallery.
