image for Play item typeNatasha Davis: T-Shirts

Play, Wed 18 Apr 2018, free entry




What is your favourite t-shirt? When did you get it, was it a gift or did you buy it? Are there any special occasions you wore it for? Has it travelled with you across borders? Using t-shirts as the playful start of an exchange, the performance choreographs memories into a visual poem, with t-shirts becoming the link to vivid and faded colours in our lives, stains and scars, people and places we love, and the choices we make when we can take very little with us on our journeys. A multi-media encounter with time and memory, with losses and liberations of living in transit – from an artist whose own performances and t-shirts have been crossing borders on five continents through the past decade.

Natasha Davis is a performance and visual artist with over 40 solo and collaborative projects in a range of media including live performance, installation, film and publication. Her work has been shown in venues such as Tate Modern London, Point Centre for Contemporary Arts Cyprus, Theatre Works Melbourne, Project Arts Centre Dublin, Luella Massey Toronto, Grahamstowne Box South Africa, Art School Hyderabad India and many others. Her performance Internal Terrains heads the British Library’s online digital performance collection and is used as its banner and twitter icon. Natasha collaborates with artists, scientists and participants from all corners of life. She holds a doctorate from Warwick University and has been funded by Arts Council England, British Council, HRF, Transatlantic Fellowship and numerous commissions and residencies.

T-shirts is a Counterpoints Arts commission, developed in collaboration with Bob Karper (sound), Lucy Cash (movement) and Marty Langthorne (lights).
