Juri Nishi Index I White Rainbow


White Rainbow is pleased to announce the second instalment of Juri Nishi’s contemporary dance composition in response to the work of Shigeo Anzaï. Assemblage is a dance performance which incorporates sculptural elements. Developing on from her previous performance, Being and Matter, the dancers’ movements will activate the gallery space, inviting the audience’s participation. The piece  responds to the motif of the line, which recurs in Anzaï’s documentation of performances by Laurie Anderson, Daniel Buren, Joan Jonas, Yayoi Kusama and Min Tanaka. 

Choreographed by Juri Nishi, danced by Monica Brunello and Madeleine Jonsson. Live music composition by Elizabeth O’Connor.

Performance times: 7:30 and 8:00 pm
