Performances live streamed by Tate as part of Corpus, a network for performance practice
Tune into Tate's YouTube channel or website to watch performances streamed live on 19 November and 3 December, as part of Corpus, a Creative Europe-supported Cooperation Project focusing on the production, presentation and dissemination of new performance works.
Mary Reid Kelley’s new work This is Offal, showing on 19 November, is commissioned and produced as part of Corpus. The next phase of this project is commissioned for Playground 2016 (STUK Kunstencentrum & M-Museum, Leuven) and will be presented at Berliner Festspiele/Foreign Affairs 2016 by KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin).
Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa’s Illusion of Matter, showing on 3 December and also commissioned and produced as part of Corpus, explores The Guatemalan civil war (1960–96), using theatre, drawing, literature and sculpture. Ramírez-Figueroa will further develop this project for If I Can't Dance, I Don't Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution (Amsterdam) as part of Edition VI - Event and Duration (2015 - 2016).
Corpus received a grant of €612,000 from Creative Europe in 2014, and this European partnership of organisations includes Bulegoa z/b (Bilbao), CAC (Vilnius), KW (Berlin), If I Can’t Dance (Amsterdam), Playground (STUK & M, Leuven), and Tate Modern (London).
