DRAF presents its 11th annual Evening of Performances, returning to historic music hall KOKO for an exciting programme of live works that range across performance art, spoken word, dance, comedy and music.
The evening presents eight new commissions and a UK premiere by international artists responding to the theme of intimacy. Each artistic contribution brings forward a new reading and experience, charging the venue with different physical, sensual and intellectual approaches.
A wide array of artistic positions take stage throughout the evening, expanding from the personal to the collective, exploring the ways in which people connect to one another. Alma Soderberg and, Martin Creed expand on the sensual dimension of intimacy.
Artist duos Tate n Lyle and Das Hund incorporate additional performers to examine and express the role of the social and political in personal interactions.
Fiona Banner aka The Vanity Press stages a typographic catwalk that oscillates between a runway show and a military march of linguistic components.
She publishes the event under a unique ISBN number, permanently registering it in the public domain. Intimacy is the quality of close relationships between subjects, which may be physical and bodily, however not necessarily sexual.
Each deeper connection creates more room to grow, more to lose and more to become. The human condition, in that regard, relies on the willingness to transcend individual boundaries, and the urge to multiply ways of being in order to have meaningful encounters.
Individuals engaged with acts of care, trust and love are invested in the transactions of desire. The programme at KOKO, responds to the various forms and powers of intimacy and its role in understanding and relating to the world around us.
The event is free to the public, and coincides with Frieze London. Her reading takes the form of a sleep journey, with pitfalls and peaks, her voice rising and falling at an unexpected pace.
She exposes what might be the most intimate realm, and unfolds her fears and confusion into words. Her voice guides the audiences to a sensuous space where personal projections and associations run amok.
A series of toasts take place throughout the evening and across the venue. The artist duo Tate n Lyle, composed of Rohanne Udall and Paul Hughes, take the commission towards an expansion of ideas and positions.
Through inviting six individuals with strong opinions —Angela Andrews, Wendy Houston, Bruno Roubicek, Tamara Tomic-Vajagec, Esmond Sage and Monsur Mansoor — and allocating each a space for expression through a celebratory toast, they isolate the individual and publish reflections from their respective lives.
Deep Etudeis informed by a composition of polyphonic sounds by Hendrik Willekens, and complemented by a constellation of light conceptualised by Nele Verreyken. She marks each movement with repetition and sound. Through improvisation and immediate choreographic response, each performance emerges as a unique composition.
Her distinctive visual and numeric identity runs throughout the venue and stretches across London.Robert Smithson art often dealt with the purpose art might have in the landscape, and ultimately, the eventual exhaustion and collapse of any given system.

Western painting - Contemporary Western art: – The postwar work of Braque developed a few basic themes. The space and content of the Studio series of five paintings were formulated in vertical phases of varying sombreness; a mysterious bird that featured in this series was a symbol expressive of aspiration.
