About

Circus performer and circle artist, Lily specialises in hula-hoop, contortion and aerial hoop. She will be reacting to Phoebe English’s exhibition using her colourful and quirky characters, injecting storytelling and humour.

Lily comes from Paris. When she was young, she was so bendy they called her “La femme serpent”. She kept dancing till age 17, but it’s only a few years later when she moved to London that Lily finally discovered the Circus. She now works as a performer as well as co-director of Chivaree Circus, and commits to turning the new, the weird and the unexpected into reality.

Saxophonist, Ben Vince, and two guest performers will respond to the exhibition though channeling the perceptual spatial dimensions of the art, to form an echo chamber with the art through looping and manipulating snatches of melody whilst exploring the textures of the saxophone.

When we think about Phoebe English's fashion, we think materials, vision, textures, precision, crafting, construction... all the things that make anything worth doing worthwhile. We know that muslin, rubber and latex are signatures, and surface is key to the clothes.
