How are we influenced by the fabrics, materials and shapes that surround us? How do they touch us? How do we feel them?
A moving sculpture, a river of fabric, an abstract landscape or an amorphous creature: between installation and performance, between the inanimate and the animate, between geometry and phantasm, the interdisciplinary production FELT renders homage to the sense of touch. Skin and cloth, constantly transformed by bone and muscle, become themselves a texture of movement, creating spaces for the imagination.
From 10.00am, Elisabeth’s Installation is throughout the building:
1pm Movement Workshop for ages three to five – £5 BOOK TICKETS
.30pm Promenade performance through the Byre – FREE

‘FELT’ follows the critically acclaimed ‘SIXFOLD‘ which has toured internationally since 2017, with over 50 performances in 12 countries. In recent years Schilling has been commissioned by Tate Live and performed at the Tate Modern, performed with the Clod Ensemble at The Place and internationally in addition to her self initiated work.
The new solo performance by dance-artist Elisabeth Schilling will be touring Scotland in June and July 2019 with the support of Creative Scotland and the Goethe Institute and is part of a continuing international tour.
