Tate St Ives Late

Late at Tate St Ives April 2018

Evening events at Tate St Ives

Enjoy after hours access to the exhibitions with accompanying special events

A perfect opportunity to enjoy Virginia Woolf: an exhibition inspired by her writings, special performances, music and films.

Unique collaborative performances by invited artist Jonathan Baldock and artist/choreographer Florence Peake. Featuring sculptures on wheels and dancers, Peake and Baldock will bring sound and movement to the galleries in this one off event.

An evening of music, along with cocktails from the café, will bring the galleries alive.

Florence Peake and Jonathan Baldock Judder Shudder (2018)

Playing with the duality and mirroring of internal and external worlds the evening starts off in the Virginia Woolf rooms with a solo performance by Florence Peake who starts a quivering movement propelled by private internal images and a relationship to weight into the ground. An intensely focused practice that is pushed into public display – an internal tremor externalised. This shaking sets off a ripple effect that spills into the viewing gallery where costume and sculpture become animated through choreographed movement and sounds. Inspired by the theatricality of Barbara Hepworth’s wheeled plinths in her studio at the Palais de Danse the performance blurs sculpture, costume and performer to create an act of absurd ritualism, at once humorous and tense, light and dark. This tide builds momentum to the final act with a group ensemble. Gathering all the performers to a juddering finale of bold physical encounters.
