What is “Behind the Kiln”?

“Behind the Kiln” is  a regular evening of dance, music and visual improvised collaborations at Artword Artbar. The idea is to pair up at least one dancer with at least one musician, and see what happens. Why does Tanis call it “Behind the Kiln”? — because if you leave wood to dry behind the kiln, it warps into all kinds of strange unpredictable shapes.

As Tanis puts it, “This event is all about the interaction between artists. It’s not about blowing the audience away with high kicks and spins and intricate choreography. It’s more about small delights. Subtle but powerful communication. and, of course, play. Experiential rather than sensationalistic.”
