Dancer Master @ Hang-Up Gallery / until 9th August 2014

Dancer Master at Hang-Up GalleryTIME AND PLACE:

Doors: Tue-Sun 12:00-18:00

@ Hang-Up Gallery 56 Stoke Newington High Street, London N16 7PB

Free entry


Dancer Master, the vibrant and energetic multi-media show by the talented RUN – artist, muralist and street artist. Dancer Master will celebrate painting, rhythm, body language and dynamism in a new body of work created exclusively for Hang-Up.

Revealing his core inspirations behind the show, RUN explains, “Many years ago when visiting South India, a taxi driver that was driving me around the streets of the city of Colombo took me to a Hindu temple. Pointing to a statue of a divinity he said to me, “Here lies the dancer master”. The statue was beautiful; full of colours, with hands and arms that were made to give the viewer the impression of a dance of the spirit”.

Since then, RUN’s work has taken the direction of multiculturalism and has a distinct ethnic flavour. His signature style can be defined as traditional craft meets fine art with a modern touch of the urban, street art influence. Fascinated with life, feelings, cultures and ideas, RUN welcomes us to a new world – complex, but full of colours, spiritual and vivacious. Known for his love of travel and experiencing diverse, unfamiliar cultures, the artist returns to London with ‘Dancer Master’ to push the boundaries of the known and expected and give a totally different meaning of life and art as we know it.

From lapis lazuli to cobalt blue, to dazzling gold and silver – travel through the story of colour with the National Gallery.

‘Making Colour’, the first exhibition of its kind in the UK, invites you on an artistic and scientific voyage of discovery. From sparkling minerals to crushed insects, learn about the surprising materials used to create pigments and the incredible journeys made by artists in their pursuit of new hues.

Span hundreds of years from the early Renaissance to the Impressionist movement as you take in displays of paintings, mineral specimens, textiles, ceramics and glass.

Journey from lapis lazuli to cobalt blue, ancient vermilion to bright cadmium red, through yellow, orange, purple and verdigris to deep green viridian – in a series of colour-themed rooms. Finally, enter a dazzling central room devoted to gold and silver.

‘Making Colour’ is complemented by an interactive display that introduces a new world of contemporary scientific thought on colour. Designed to demonstrate how we perceive and register colour, the experiment will reveal how the eye and brain respond to colour in unexpected ways.

A stir-fry of war-torn Hong Kong

The story of Hong Kong during the Japanese occupation in the 1940s as told through the eyes of a Cantonese chef and her pet goose. Using physical theatre, puppetry and object manipulation, Out of Chaos brings a relatively little-known chapter of colonial history among UK audiences to life with playfulness and kitchen utensils.

This is the first full-length production of Out of Chaos, a theatre company dedicated to telling stories inspired by East Asia, in particularly Hong Kong and China. This original work is conceived by Artistic Director Paula Siu and devised by the Company. Extracts of The Flying Roast Goose were previously shown at Blue Elephant’s scratch night, Trunkated, in May 2013, Oval House in December 2012 and Pulse Festival 2013. The Flying Roast Goose is produced in association with Yellow Earth Theatre and supported by the Arts Council England.
