“Ah seein dem comin down de road like fire burning up de place”
Created by Ashanti Harris and performed in collaboration with three dancers, Dancing a Peripheral Quadrille is a Carnival in the making. Enjoy free, drop-in performances at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop throughout Edinburgh Art Festival 2022.
Situated within the liminal position between the Caribbean and Scotland, the performance uses sound, memory, composition and movement to play with the peripheralities of cultural identity.
PREVIEW: Join us on Friday 29 July from 7 – 9pm, where the performance activates the sculptural elements of Ashanti’s installation and major new commission, Dancing a Peripheral Quadrille (Thursday 28 July – Sunday 28 August).
This work has been funded and supported by Art Fund, Creative Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council.
