The Magma Group Public PerformanceFollowing on from the success of their previous live art performance in April 2012 at Tate Modern, which attracted considerable publicity, the Magma Group have choreo- graphed a mime performance using wigs and masks especially for TOAF. They will be accompanied by live music from Eastern European Klezmer band Balabustah and will introduce guest performer Dimitris Politis who is researching Performance and Art at Goldsmiths College London.
Saturday 24th November 2012 at 3.00 pm
Ambika P3, 35 Marylebone Road, London, NW1 5LS
The aim of the performance is to demonstrate the group's ethos of combining conceptual and expressive qualities in their art, and involves the creation of a group art piece by 5 performers, whilst making gestural movements led by the klezmer music. The piece will be filmed by film maker Mark Levermore.
The Magma Group is an international exhibiting group founded by Annie Zamero in 2011. The aims of the group are to form an alternative path for the current of energetically expressive contemporary art and to provide a showcase and network for artists whose work combines expression with concept.
