Join Residence artist Sylvia Rimat in a talk about her latest performance production This Moment Now.
The show sets out to playfully explore how we perceive time, as individuals, as audiences in a performance and on a wider scale, considering Einstein’s spacetime and the concept of entropy. Expect snippets of video, talking, maybe a dance and possibly some cups of tea.
Commissioned by ICIA University of Bath.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Further support by Cambridge Junction, Chelsea Theatre, Bristol Old Vic Ferment, Arnolfini and Residence.
“The UK’s answer to Miranda July.”
“A total delight from start to finish.”
Total Theatre on If You Decide To Stay
“The skill of Rimat’s performance lies in the way she marries the magic of the theatre with the fantasies of the virtual.”

About Sylvia Rimat:
A bear in red heels, a dancer from a bygone era: Rimat creates original performances with a pinch of the surreal.
Characterized by playful audience interaction and strong visual aesthetics, her work deals with consciousness, personal histories and the imagination.
Rimat’s performances have been presented widely in the UK and internationally.
This event is part of Residence in residence. This month, Arnolfini’s level 1 galleries have become a temporary home to Residence, a collective of Bristol based artists who make performance and live art. United by a curiosity towards each other’s practices and a commitment to supporting each other, they share resources, space and knowledge.
Residence have recently moved out of The Milk Bar, where they were housed for the past six years under Bristol City Council's Capacity scheme. They are now looking for a new space to call home.
Current Residence artists are: Action Hero, Astrid Breel, Alice Human, Bella Fortune, Ed Rapley, Ella Good & Nicki Kent, Folake Shoga, Ophelia Bitz, Jasmine Loveys, Jo Bannon, Sara Zaltash, Sylvia Rimat, Ria Hartley, Tom Marshman, Zoe Heron.
