Fathoms: Aya Kobayashi
Thursday 22nd March 7pm
Aya is an independent dance artist, recently moved to Glasgow. She teaches, performs and creates work with a wide range of people. She works with the EY Tate Arts Partnership to deliver workshop performances that aim to facilitate creative communication through the movement of bodies in space.
Consisting of a moving body sharing space with the audience, Aya’s performance will unfold within the space, exploring seen and unseen matters, sharing images, metaphors and food for thought.
She has presented her work at locations including The Place, QEH, Birmingham Hippodrome, Tate Modern, Northern Ballet, The Lowry, Egypt, Spain, Mexico and Japan.

After graduating from Cambridge University with a degree in music, Iain moved to Bristol where he developed a collaboratively driven interdisciplinary practice, returning to his home city of Edinburgh in 2010.
Iain currently balances his creative work and collaborations with his job at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh.
His performance work includes The Library is Open!, a night of drag queen poetry at the Scottish Poetry Library that won a Creative Edinburgh award, and a durational presentation of the complete Emily Dickinson poems – a piece developed with Forest Centre+ that was subsequently taken on tour to Berlin.
Iain is a writer-in-residence at John Hansard Gallery in Southampton, and his first collection of poems, I’m A Pretty Circler, will be published by Glasgow-based Vagabond Voices later this year.
