We are very excited to be promoting Azizi Cole’s new work: Body Clock.
We feel immensely proud to be supporting one of our ACE Youth old alumni through their successful career! See more about Azizi’s practice below.

Body Clock investigates the idea of composing a piece of music by exploring sounds of the body; using unison, syncopation, and rhythmic techniques to create a live music and physical dance experience. Born out of a research project supported by the work has been developed as part of Sounding Change, and receives its first live performance this evening.

A percussionist and composer, artistic practice combines experience in both music and dance to create work that is both a visual and audible performance experience using body percussion to compose and choreograph simultaneously.

Performed as a duet by dancers and .sy with music by and Body Clock is a multidisciplinary piece combining music, movement, and the influence that music can have on the body.
