Inspired by the thought-objects of Matthew Ritchie’s NOEMA, Artist-in-residence, Dance and Choreographer Flora Wiegmann translated the diagrams into the language of movement and will record these readings as they activate the space.
On August 20th at 3pm, join Flora as she presents her collection of choreographies and scores inspired by NOEMA in a formal performance. Flora will perform her new work with dancer Devika Wickremesinghe at ESMoA. The performance will also be livestreamed on ESMoA’s Facebook page.
