As part of Anxiety Arts Festival 2014

About

The UK premiere of Latifa Laà ¢bissi's solo dance à‰cran Somnambule, a reinterpretation of Mary Wigman's 1926 Witch Dance. Based on the existing 40 second film excerpt of Wigman's seminal piece, Laà ¢bissi has slowed down the movements to create a 31 minute ‘expression dance', a sort of somnambulist ritual which, staged alongside Freud's personal objects, acquires an uncanny quality. Anxiety 2014 is a new London-wide arts festival, curated by the Mental Health Foundation and taking place throughout June. The festival explores anxiety, looking at its causes, how it affects all of our lives, and how it can act as a creative force. It brings together leading and emerging artists to address anxiety from different angles: from medical, social and historical perspectives to individual, collective and contemporary viewpoints. Anxiety 2014 presents a dynamic programme of visual art, film, performance, music, dance, theatre and talks spanning venues across London, including leading arts organisations, universities, health care institutions and community centres.
