Caj Collab
‚ÄĒ Eleanor Sikorski & Lindsey Mendick

Sunday, 26 May 2019, 7-8pm
Tate Modern, East Room, Bankside London SE1 9TG

For tickets visit: Tate Modern and join the panel discussion Block Universe: Post-Dance beforehand with a combined ticket.

CAJ COLLAB invites two artists from different disciplines who have never worked together before and gives them one day to create a performance. CAJ COLLAB is a creative way of looking at the politics of how performance is made, stemming from a desire to facilitate collaborations away from high stakes, labour intensive structures of: funding Рrehearsal Рperformance, and to rediscover something about play/casualness and generating. Taking place in the East Room at Tate Modern following the Block Universe X Tate Post-dance conference, CAJ COLLAB founders, Eve Veglio-White and Michael Kitchin invite artists Eleanor Sikorski and Lindsey Mendick.

Eleanor Sikorski is a dancer and choreographer (Nottingham/London). Her work has taken many shapes – dance, cabaret, comedy, film and music – drawing increasingly on the narrative of her own life and the wider social commentary which is brought to light. She works as a dancer for several choreographers and is one third of ‚ÄėNora‚Äô, a trio of dancers who curate and commission choreographers to make work for them to perform. She studied contemporary dance (LCDS 2006-10).
