1. Installation and Performance
      26 – 27 November 2016

      Gravitational Feel

      Fred Moten and Wu Tsang
      Splendor, Amsterdam
    2. Gravitational Feel is a sculpture-performance by Fred Moten and Wu Tsang, who together cohabit the roles of poet and performance artist. The work continues their collaboration on the poetics of intimacy and is a research-experiment into how to sense entanglement. Using fabric and sound they will produce a series of “chance events”, as an experiment in blurring, the social and physical significance of touch and voice, as well as questions of space and time in matter.

      Presented at Splendor, a former bathhouse converted to a music venue by a collective of fifty musicians, Moten and Tsang will be present in the space at punctuated moments, bringing together audience and improvisational action.

      The installation will be on display and accessible to audiences for free between performances on Saturday 26 November from 12pm – 4pm, and on Sunday 27 November from 1pm – 4pm.

      Gravitational Feel is presented as part of If I Can’t Dance’s Finale for Edition VI – Event and Duration (2015 – 2016).

      Fred Moten and Wu Tsang’s project Gravitational Feel is commissioned and produced as part of Corpus, network for performance practice, www.corpus-network.org. Corpus is Bulegoa z/b (Bilbao), CAC (Vilnius), KW (Berlin), If I Can’t Dance (Amsterdam), Playground (STUK & M, Leuven), and Tate Modern (London).
