BATCH:2 Experiments in Making

BATCH:2 is the second annual season of Sunday afternoon performances throughout August at The Bakery Studio, Jedburgh.  This year the programme has expanded to include experimental studio performances, dance screenings and dance installations and  brings together many of Scotland’s most innovative and distinguished dance makers to perform works that push at the edges of contemporary dance. The thread running through the programme is an exploration of different ways of making, performing and presenting including movement scores, collaborative working and improvisational structures. Several of the performances include live music and audiences are invited to stay for post- performance conversations over tea and coffee, which opens the work up for discussion.

Artists include Tim Rubidge, Audicia Lynne Morley, In the Making, air field collective, Merav Israel and Dudendance.

Entr’actes: Alternative Arrangements is the title of a new collaboration with visual artist Felicity Bristow. We hope the first of a  series.

For this project our site of reference and reflection is the geological formation of Hutton’s Unconformity at Inchbonny, Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders.

The performance is part of a day long programme of artist led events in Jedburgh on November 19th 2017 as part of the wider ‘Mapping the Borders’ programme for the Being Human Festival .

‘We are not to look for nature in a quiescent state; matter itself must be in motion, and the scenes of life a continued or repeated series of agitations and events’

Extending Practice Group

We are an informal friendly gathering of professional creative practitioners from different art forms that meet once a month to share and extend our practice.

The sessions are led by choreographer Claire Pençak and commence from a body based, performative practice but are presented in a way that can be taken up and adapted to individual art forms. The group includes movement practitioners, visual artists and musicians. Writers would be most welcome to join!  Continue reading
