The Art of Gesture

  • The Studio, Wellcome Collection 183 Euston Road London, NW1 2BE United Kingdom (map)
Single Yellow Lines, by Charlie Harrison

Single Yellow Lines, by Charlie Harrison

Join artist and Created out of Mind collaborator Charlie Harrison, and dance movement psychotherapist and choreographer Beatrice Allegranti for discussion and creative activities exploring the art of gesture at Wellcome Collection.

How is our sense of self embodied in gesture and movement? Does living with a dementia affect this form of expression? We will be creating collective canvases of ‘single yellow lines’; an artistic experiment which reflects on the unique information that can be gathered in a single gesture. Come and consider what this says about how identity is expressed through movement in painting and dance, even when other functions may be compromised.

A gesture can also be an offering or an invitation - to choose to do something creative and tempt others to join in, as we hope to do during this workshop.

This event is FREE. Tickets are available here
