BANNERColombo Art Biennale - 2
Solo performance for film by Vimukti Jayasundera at Video Jam for the opening of the Colombo Art Biennale. During the Sura Medura Residency, Sri Lanka.
I was really delighted to devise and deliver a series of voice workshops with Wendy Kirkup. The workshops were exploratory, with a focus on improvisation, in support of Wendy’s current research and development towards a new film looking at 16mm film and improvised voice.
Big thanks to Wendy, Catherine, Laura, Nicole and Emmie for their openness, contributions, humour and voices. The film footage was captured by Alex Hetherington, and Stevie Jones recorded the sound. Read more about Wendy’s work at Wendy’s Instagram. I also add updates at Nic’s Instagram if you want to connect there.

I am delighted to be collaborating as a vocalist with artist Anne Colvin on her moving image artwork/experience Dear Prudence re-imagined. More information about the work is available at Dear Prudence re-imagined.
In the final week of the Sura Medura residency we headed up the road for the opening of Colombo Art Biennale in Sri Lanka. I was excited to also have been invited by Shereen Perera to create a live score for the Video Jam event on the opening night. I responded with a solo vocal performance to a beautiful, strange and thoughtful clip of Sri Lankan film-maker Vimukthi Jayasundara’s Light in the Yellow Breathing Space.
The event took place on 2nd December 2016 at the ZMax Fairway Hotel roof terrace and was part of the Colombo Biennale Performing Arts Programme.
