United by their interest in ‘the body in space’ and a thirst for extended collaboration, visual artist Anni Katrin Elmer and dance artist Irène Wernli endeavour turning NINES into a playground and performance gallery to explore the meeting points of their and their collaborators' practises.

Inspired by patterns of rhythm and in response to Copeland Park’s environment and existing communities, they will deploy their creation process and build-up to a Performance Installation, creating danced sound-loops, mapped video projections and music-inspired drawings.

With a focus on the interplay of Music, Movement and New Visual Media, the TAKEOVER will host a public movement and music jam, a discussion, non-verbal encounters and a participatory live music and drawing event, examining rhythm within the arts more widely. Featuring pop-up performances, the final exhibition will be open for several hours, allowing visitors to roam freely within the altered space. We also hope to find local and international mavericks and amateurs bantering and bonding over a cocktail (or coconut water) at NINES' bar.

Confirmed collaborators include Central St Martins visual arts collective NYHA, Adam Skinner, Tyrone Isaac-Stuart, Lynda Beckett, Lena Heubusch and Neale Willis.
