Laila Diallo Residency

Dance maker Laïla Diallo has invited composer Jules Maxwell to join her again in the creation of a new performance piece, Countless Yellow Chairs. They are excited to continue the dialogue they began through the making of Hold Everything Dear in 2012.

This new work, in which they will both perform, explores ideas of memories and forgettings, of aloneness and togetherness.

Their residency at Bath Edge Arts will culminate in a studio sharing on Thursday 1st October, 4pm, marking the end of the first phase of creation. All are welcome to join Laila and Jules for this sharing. The artists would greatly value the opportunity of engaging in a dialogue with a diverse audience before embarking upon the second phase of development to complete this new work, which will be presented at Edge Arts in Spring 2016.

Laïla Diallo is leading a workshop which will draw on ideas and processes developed in the making of Countless Yellow Chairs on Sat 3rd Oct 11am-3pm. To book and find out more click HERE

Countless Yellow Chairs is supported using public funding by Arts Council England, co-commissioned by Edge Arts, University of Bath, Theatre Bristol and Bristol Old Vic Ferment/Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
