Breathing Line is a new public art work by Rosanna Irvine – a kinetic human sculpture that leaves behind a trail of gold.

In an oddly meditative and quietly rhythmic group action, performers process through Sneinton Market leaving behind their trail of gold - £1000 in gold coins. The trail leads to the Breathing Line market stall.

At the market stall the public are invited to unmake the work - to take away a gift of 10 gold coins. In return they are asked to undertake a positive action that costs nothing. The market stall is a space for discussion around what kind of action might be ‘positive.’ It invites reflections around our transactions in the world, the value we place on time and the economy of the gift.

Performance in the market from 11.30am
Installation in Sneinton Market Lanes 12noon - 2pm

FREE (No Ticket Required)
Suitable for all

Dance4 are looking for performers to be part of Breathing Line which will be at Sneinton Market on 9 September 2017.

The performance involves slow walking, close attention to breath, awareness of the group, and lots of crouching down towards the ground and rising again. The event also involves having discussions with members of the public.

If this is of interest to you there is a FREE workshop with Rosanna Irvine on Tuesday 25 July 2017.
