Christopher Kirubi launches Rush with poetry + performance tracing often hidden spaces of intimacy at Auto Italia, Dec 8

7 December 2017

The launch of performance and poetry evening Rush takes place at London’s Auto Italia on December 8.

Led by Christopher Kirubi in collaboration with Adam Fa-Rah, Chloe Fiilani, Shenece Oretha and Rhoda Boateng, the group are meeting collectively to put on evenings of poetry, sound and performance where they will “seek to trace often hidden spaces of intimacy and carve out new ones – both private and shared.”

Opening up the conversation, they will explore these intimate conversations through text, sound and movement, and the project will continue with a publication in 2018. London-based artist Kirubi “uses the mutability of images, objects and text to negotiate the limits of sexuality, gender, race and desire.”

The NO SCREENING audio presentation and performance is on at London’s ICA on May 13.

The event is curated by artist Cristine Brache in response to Martine Syms’ current Fact & Trouble exhibition that questions gestures in American media as expressions of identity. Selected artists —including Cassandre GreenbergAna Maria Soubhia & Rhoda Boateng, Ulijona Odišarija, and Sarah Boulton —will present sonic works to be performed and heard in darkness, eschewing the ‘screen’ and questioning its primacy in storytelling.

Other participating artists include Harry Bix,  Shenece Liburd, Christopher Kirubi and Mary Vettise in an event presented by art and sound collectives Sounds Like and East Anglia Records.

See the ICA website for details.**
