The Displaced

Nicola Anthony collaborates with Butoh dancer Syv Bruzeau at The Displaced (The Arts House). Her saga seed installation will feature in Syv's performance, taking place at 8pm.

"A fizzing festival of exciting happenings is coming your way this Friday. A showcase of living passions has sprung up at The Arts House this week for the exhibition Passionistas. This collaborative photography project presented by (COLLAB)² aims to raise awareness of our local & homegrown passionistas. As part of the exhibition, a feast of artists, performers and interactive artworks will be laid out for us on Friday.

Located in the space, you can find pop-up pieces which are exclusive to THE DISPLACED ongoing from 12pm, and from 7pm onwards there is a carnival of dance, performance, movement, interactive works and creativity – perfect for a Friday night:


Mandala, 2013, Nicola Anthony

Mandala, 2013, saga seeds installation, Nicola Anthony

At 8-8.30, watch (and if you want, interact with) Transparent Borders – a performance by Butoh dancer Syv Bruzeau who has collaborated with artist Nicola Anthony, to ask: “What are the borders to our world?” In this performance artwork, 6000 saga seeds and one human body interact with a space filled with words, light, and mandalas. Both the performer’s body and the seeds eventually transcend their own borders, and are carried away by the audience.
