Summer 2016: Bart Waltz Collective, Bartholomew’s Waltz

BW EAF gayfield

10th - 14th August 2016 Bartholomew’s Waltz considers the current need for public celebrations within our society. Inviting audiences to join in games, dance and music as part of an orchestrated celebration and staged in an immersive installation. This event has a playful iconoclastic streak and expresses a yearning for communal belonging.  Bartholomews' Waltz is part of the Edinburgh Art Festival 2016.

Staged by the collaborative artist’s group BART WALTZ Collective; Lilian Ptacek; George Ridgway; Bryony Rose; Elinor Stanley; Max Syedtollen and Jessie Whiteley. They invite you, the audience to participate in games, dance and music as part of an orchestrated celebration. Underlying these invented festivities and collaboratively created installation is a playful iconoclastic streak tempered by a sincere yearning for irrevocably lost – or perhaps imagined histories. Bartholomew’s Waltz will create a cross disciplinary forum that asks audiences to share through making and celebrating; establishing a mode of communication rooted in merriment and inclusiveness.  Come dance, play and sing.
