For the closing party of the exhibition Grace Before Meat by Espira on Tuesday 4th June 2013, artists Nicholas McArthur and Robert Molloy Vaughan present “a cocktail of danger, insanity and kinectic joy!”
‘The Dancing Plague of 1518 references a mysterious outbreak of dancing-to-death that occurred in Strasbourg. Set to Gregorian plainchant and electronic trance music, the piece takes the audience out into the streets, finding parallels between religious ecstasy and club culture, and more broadly, capitalism and psychological distress’… Luke Jennings, The Guardian 2012
‘It might be hard to imagine that a performance piece about a rare 16th century plague could be so spontaneous and fun, but Nicholas MacArthur and Robert Vaughan pull it off with gusto’… Hannah Roast, Nottingham Visual Arts, 2013
Tuesday 4th June 2013, 8pm – 11pm (Admission free)
325 Brockley Road, London SE4 2QZ
