London theatre news: Friday 7 August 2020
Festivals - Multi-art
The Sunday Art Club - a free multi-disciplinary festival celebrating diversity in the arts - will be socially distanced in Shoreditch and online this August and September.
The Sunday Art Club takes place in Shoreditch on 30 August and 27 September 2020.
It's a multi-disciplinary festival which will be socially distanced, held at Voxonica in Shoreditch as well as streamed online so everyone can enjoy its range of theatre, jazz, film and visual art installations.
The line-up highlights this August include a live mural painting by contemporary artist Aurelie Freoua who creates rhythm and harmony through contrasting colours and light in her paintings; a live set from emerging DJs influenced by jazz, reggae, house and hip-hop; live music from Jazz on the Rox showcasing a blend of romantic and seductive jazz classics; a stunning installation from abstract urban artist Christian Asare, a British Ghanain Artist whose variations in culture and identity influence his creative expression; performances directed by Khoas' James Scotland (Asst.Director, She Ventures and He Wins, Young Vic) and a short film
from NatWest and BP Award-winning director, choreographer and performance-art artist Greta Mendez.
Co-curated by James Scotland, co-founder of Khaos and Trix Mendez, founder of Outside The Zone, The Sunday Art Club is a chance to bring live art back to audiences.
It offers audiences (both online and in person) the opportunity to see alternative, exciting new work in a Covid-safe setting.
James said ...
"The Sunday Art Club is vital to the life-blood of the independent art scene and endeavours to cater to underrepresented artists, both British and international, who otherwise might lose their voices as the arts industry emerges from the aftermath of COVID-19.
This is an opportunity for artists to make meaningful connections as well as for audiences to reconnect with grassroots talent producing exemplary work."
Following a successful debut in July, this unique series of not-for-profit events is a vehicle for the arts industry to reconnect at a grassroots level.
It looks to build a network of multi-disciplinary artists and audiences from diverse backgrounds.
The Sunday Art Club is free to attend both in person and online, with donations encouraged to support the artists and creatives involved.
More artists will be announced on social media for upcoming dates.
(Note: Khaos were formerly known as Outer Gaea Company.)
