Falling in love with Frida is an intimate and enticing performance that explores the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954).
Winner of the prestigious Herald Angel Award at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Falling in love with Frida is a reclaiming of a disabled artist, a love like obsession, and an enquiry into how we shape what we are remembered for and how much can we really control others memories of us. It exposes many little-known facts about the infamous woman, remembered for her art. Where affinities and parallels are drawn, happy distractions are employed and a tale of ‘the great concealer’ is skillfully revealed by and through powerful yet fragile bodies.
Date: 18 Mar 2016 – 19 Mar 2016

Seeing Sound is an informal practice-led symposium exploring multimedia work which foregrounds the relationship between sound and image. It explores areas such as visual music, abstract cinema, experimental animation, audiovisual performance and installation practice through paper sessions, screenings, performances and installations. The organising committee is calling for submissions of papers, fixed media works and performance works and are looking for imaginative proposals for the MediaWall and atrium space of the new Commons building.
Seeing Sound 4 will take place at Bath Spa over the 9th and 10th of April 2016. It represents a move away from the winter months, and a physical move also – although still hosted on our idyllic Newton Park campus, the event will be hosted in our new state-of-the art Commons building. We will make full use of the two-storey Med
iaWall that stands at its centre in a programme which foregrounds video synthesis and expanded cinema.
