Hi Jinx

Liz Aggiss

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

Liz Aggiss will perform a lecture entitled Hi Jinx, an homage to Heidi Dzinkowska, the seminal - and fictional - early 20th-century dancer, choreographer and filmmaker.

Featuring dance reconstructions, an extensive film archive, and live demonstrations of Dzinkowska’s highly influential ‘dance commandments’. A cheeky take on the creation of mythologies, personal gurus and the history of art.

Followed by a reception and artist-led viewing of Men in the Wall.
