IT WITHOUT A BLINK
EUNHYE HWANG
Saturday 19 March 2011
…12.30 – 2.30PM

4A are looking for participants to work with Berlin-based Korean artist Eunhye Hwang
in a choreographed performance, It Without A Blink, on Saturday 19th March 2011.
Eunhye Hwang’s performances investigate communication through public interventions that
draw on participatory engagement by an often unexpecting audience.
Members of the audience register their names which will then be performed back to them as
an arrangement of movement and vocalisation by the artist and groups of singers and dancers.
Participants can specify their preference for vocals or dance.
You will work closely with the artist during two rehearsals and the final performance.
The performance will be filmed and screened throughout our exhibition Constellation.
If you would like to be part of this unique opportunity email us at info@4a.com.au or call 02 9212 0380
It Without A Blink is part of 4A’s exhibition Constellation.
