Artist Sam Williams stages a 3-hour live choreographic installation in conversation with Kang’s commission. This performance is a continuation of Williams’s Salvage Rhythms series, which combines performance, film, text and collage to explore what we as humans can learn from observing the multispecies entanglements we are a part of. At Chisenhale the work will be performed by dancers Temitope Ajose, Karen Callaghan and Iro Costello and feature a soundscape created in collaboration with musician Roly Porter. Visitors are invited to come and go as they please during the performance.
