The Last Builder
"When I came to Manchester from Panama, and coming from a Salsa background I was mesmerised by the dancing in Manchester's clubs – I thought it was incredible what was happening – the people here could really, really dance, in a different but fantastic way"

HOW YOU MOVE IS WHO YOU ARE
Contemporary artists explore physical expression in sub cultures and dance phenomena
Ten days of exhibition, events and participation at Victoria Baths open on Thursday 24th April, 6-9pm, continuing daily 2-6pm (excluding Mondays and Tuesdays) and on Saturday 26th April 2pm-6pm.
This exhibition's references will be international; how Manchester and the North connects to the world – exploring through visual and sensual experiences, and demonstrating the appropriation and influence of aspects of the Latin and African American, juxtaposed with local sub cultures.
As a moment in history, Northern Soul led to three decades of cultural achievement through dance in the North of England. Something sensual, vital, athletic and beautiful was expressed at a time of economic and industrial decline.
Installations, films and performance: Humberto Velez / Another Adele / Ivan Capote / Bethany Cassidy / Wayne Hemingway / Naomi Kendrick / Dominique Tessier / William Titley / Alison Kershaw
Admission to the opening night of Un-Rest and the exhibition itself is free. Un-Rest includes two ticketed events on 26th April (Drawn to the Beat) and 3rd May (Recorded Soul - the All-nighter). Tickets for these events available from Eventbrite - see link below.
Un-Rest culminates at our Open Day on Sunday 4th May - admission on the door (£3/£2.50)
