Actiontrack performance at Hauser and Wirth
Actiontrack Performance Company, having been commissioned by Hauser & Wirth, have been working with two primary schools in Somerset; Bruton Primary and Upton Noble. They have been producing a unique production that responds and honours the current exhibition running at Hauser and Wirth by Subodh Gupta.
The performers from the Primary Schools are telling the tale of Uncle Moon, reflecting Subodh's piece titled; Chanda Mama Door Ke. The performance is based on the traditional Indian nursery rhyme and tells the tale of the journey to visit Uncle Moon on the moon! The performance will involve processional dancing, traditional Indian singing as well as epic design pieces, all inspired by traditional Indian art forms and Subodh's work.
The children from both schools performed in front of an audience of over 100 people the Hauser & Wirth Gallery. It was a truly joyous occasion and what education should be all about.
