Meet Brainbow Limb

Posted by Jasia / September 20, 2010

The first of many intervention-performance-happening-hard to describe but worth the extra breath to describe events by the Brainbow collective, Brainbow Lounge was part of September's ArtHotel, a monthly-ish event featuring a variety of performance works hosted at Hotel Espresso. Strangeness followed, as performers, art-hotel-goers and hotel patrons blended into one surreal vacation party.

Don't be fooled into thinking nothing happened- you can identify an Art Lounge by the following signs:

a) Inappropriate mixing of leopard print, sportsware and fancy dress
b) Projected vacation photos on every surface
c) Disconcerting, boisterous laughter
d) People having a good time in the hotel lounge

Still, even with these tell tale signs, I was often unsure of who was part of the Brainbow lounge. More than once, I began to believe I was a performer, tossing a beach ball with strangers and even adopting a pet rhino for a while. I don't think I was the only "guest" of the first Brainbow Lounge that suffered this confusion, all around me there was what might be described as audience-performer interaction if you could only be certain who was part of the audience and exactly who the performers were.

Another Arthotel is scheduled for October 15th and I should probably get back there; last time I hardly managed to get out of the Lounge for long enough to locate the other performances.

A newly formed multi-media collective, Brainbow Limb is Jasa Baka, Julia Thomas and Matthew Waddell. The trio, whose eclectic backgrounds range from dance to theatre design to projection work and film-making, will undertake a period of intensive production from October to November; hosting public workshops, performances and participating in the Biennale d'art performatif de Rouyn-Noranda at L'Ecart, Lieu d'Art Actuel.

To start with I want to say great blog! I needed a fast question through which
I'd like to ask unless you mind. I used to be curious to
understand how you will center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
We have had a challenging time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas on the market.
I actually do get pleasure from writing nonetheless it just seems
like the 1st ten or fifteen minutes are generally wasted just considering how
to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!

fantastic set up, very informative. I ponder why the exact opposite specialists of this sector don't
understand this. You should continue your writing. I'm sure, you've an enormous readers'
base already!
