What is the Sound of One Heart Dancing? is a virtual exhibition produced and directed by cross-disciplinary artist, Tia Vellani. The urge to create defies description. A fundamental form of creative expression that almost always occurs without words is dancing. The impulse to dance has been captured in photos of an illuminated dancer performing in the dark. The photos, which express the essence of the dance, have inspired the creation of new music. A video clip provides a glimpse behind the curtain. Performance-Helen Walsh. Photography-Jennie Grangel and Tia Vellani. Composition-Eoin Coffey, Sandra Mogensen, and Tia Vellani.
The exhibition will be officially launched on Saturday 7th August at 3pm with an “in conversation” Zoom event with the artist on the Alternative Kilkenny Arts Festival website www.akafringe.com.
What is the Sound of One Heart Dancing? has been created in partnership with Alternative Kilkenny Arts.
