There was a SHARING of the SEEDS artists week of developments, on SATURDAY 15th DECEMBER 2018.

SEEDS Artists:

SHAKEERA AHMUN

‘My diverse upbringing has strongly influenced me to explore a sense of community and bond, through movement and music. I will portray these values of warmth and equality within the honesty of my movement vocabulary and character to create an ambience of togetherness. This solo will be part of a work in progress.’

 

‘We are both dance artists. We have both recently moved to Cardiff. We are married to one another.  One of us is Welsh.  Neither of us have made work before.

We moved to Cardiff in the hope of creating.  We aren’t yet sure what that looks like, but it could be a number of things: dances, a home, friendships, collaborations, babies…

During the residency week we would like to spend time with each other in a context different to how we usually spend time with one another.  Having never made our own work, either individually or together, this will be the start of imagining and investigating what that might look like.

The plan is to approach this slowly. The plan is to not talk about the house or which contractor gave the best quote.  The plan is to move together, walk together, talk together and maybe come up with some new things we can do together.  The plan is to not fall out!’
