Sadler’s Wells Wild Card returns with a bespoke evening curated by British-Chilean choreographer and dance artist Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome on Thursday 14 & Friday 15 November in a UK Premiere.
Muñoz-Newsome’s evening is an invitation to interact with INCHOATE BUZZ, a new immersive work. Created together with visual artist India Harvey and sound artist Josh Anio Grigg, it offers an environment to explore, inviting us into a sensorial journey in a relaxed set of soft objects, projections and suspended sculpture. Intimacy, proximity and distance are all at play.
For this version of INCHOATE BUZZ, several guest artists perform their own works within its welcoming environment: dance artists Last Yearz Interesting Negro (Jamila Johnson-Small), Rukeya, Eve Stainton, and musicians Kiera Coward Deyell (Black Obsidian Sound System) and Isabel Muñoz-Newsome (Pumarosa).
Eva Martinez, Sadler’s Wells’ Artistic Programmer said “It is such a privilege to witness an artist’s vision unfold during our work on Wild Cards. Fernanda’s naturally instinctive curation is bringing to life a unique sensory experience. I see it arising from the perspective of her lived experience as a dancer, tapping into that specific ability to be in touch with different levels of realities at once, and making these visible to us. At the cross roads of the installation, the live performance and the group mediation, the evening promises to be call to a different set of actions: deep listening, resting, slowing down. An invitation to use more of our senses to interact with the world.”
The development of INCHOATE BUZZ is supported by a DanceXchange Choreography Award, a Jerwood New Work Fund grant from Jerwood Arts and though public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome’s work is produced by Nikki Tomlinson.
