In November 2009, we commisioned Milton Keynes based Theatre company, Dancing Brick to respond to the current exhibition by Nasreen Mohammedi as a pilot for the Scratch Night series.

 

‘For our performance, we have also drawn inspiration from Antonioni’s 1962 film ‘L’Eclisse’, which tells the story of a man and a woman who attempt to fall in love in the estranged utopian landscape of the artificial urban space of Eur, on the outskirts of Rome in the 1960’s. We feel that the visual themes and the strong architectural elements used in the film are very present in Mohamedi’s work, where the human presence is felt like a shadow, a whisper fading into the depths of the blueprint-like drawings’
