Curious is an alternative showcase of pop-up performances and participative installations by Masters students from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. This event addresses the theme of production through enquiry into different ways of ‘knowing’ – through embodied experience; through our relationship to physical and sonic materials; and through non-verbal communication and collaboration.
Curious will question dominant forms of knowledge production; and open up a dynamic, inspiring, activist learning environment. Come and go: watch, listen, wander, be surprised, have chats with artists, participate, comment and discuss. This is for anyone who is keen to experience progressive live art forms in intriguing, provocative ways. Our intention is to generate discussion and fresh ways of seeing Tate's collection through experiencing new work.

This event is programmed by Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning, a Tate Exchange Associate.
