What if you were a bacteria cell? How would you react? How would you behave? How would you survive? Find out in an interactive and experimental performance featuring improvising drummer Simon Roth, microbiologist Marta Ciechońska and dancers Elisa Vassena and Kasia Witek.
Behave Yourself is a collaborative performance in response to the project SOFT ROC by Tom et Arthur on view at KELDER. The second performance will be on Friday 1 June 2018 by London-based artist Fay Nicolson.
About Simon Roth:
Simon Roth grew up playing music in a house by a forest between the M25 and the Metropolitan line. He was given a Mickey Mouse drum kit to play, while his brothers had shiny and ornate things like a saxophone and Spanish guitar. He's always looked back since.
About Soft Roc:
Soft Roc is a malleable environment created by artist duo Tom et Arthur that proposes agitation and troublemaking as a way to disrupt the rigid categories of active and passive. For their first project in London, Tom et Arthur invade KELDER’s architectural tropes with a collection of orthostatic shades that turn the previously stable and solid structure into an elastic and fuzzy layout. Stretching from a dolmen to a padded cell, Soft Roc produces the conditions for things to be cloudy, confused and violently shaken.
About Tom et Arthur:
Tom et Arthur is a collaborative practice that encompasses the field of design and art. Formed by Tom Schneider and Arthur Tramier, they create deep deep domestic layouts – applied and fantastic situations through counter-correct objects, spaces, and dirty intuitions. Since their graduation from the Dirty Art Department at the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam NL, their work has been exhibited in Galleries (as part of ‘Rare Collisions of Purpose’, Boetzelaer|Nispen, NL; Deborah Bowmann, BE), Squats (PostNorma, NL; Macao, IT) and Bubbles (Sloterdijk, NL).
