Solo for Two

A site-responsive version of Jean Abreu's new work at the Horniman Museum & Gardens on 19 July

Jean Abreu discovers the wonders of the Horniman's newly re-opened World Gallery as he re-imagines his latest work in this site-responsive version of Solo for Two.

Commissioned by the Horniman and the Southbank Centre, Solo for Two is performed by Jean Abreu, Luna Cenere and a two-headed female character Macheba, in the form of a little robot, who mirrors and interacts with the dancers, while they make their way through the World Gallery.

The performance is part of the Wonderful World Late event at the Horniman Museum & Gardens. Throughout the evening, you can also party Around the World in 80 Tunes with DJ Chris Tofu, discover the links between science fiction, virtual reality, and the Horniman’s collection of taxidermy and join exclusive tours with curators exploring the museum's new World Gallery, musical instrument and natural history collections. Of course, there will be music, food and fantastic views for a festive summer evening.

Free event!

This event is free of charge, but you will need to reserve in advance, max. 4 persons per booking.

Solo for Two is co-commissioned by the Horniman Museum & Gardens & Southbank Centre, and supported by Arts Council England, University of Bath, Bath Spa University, Swindon Dance & South East Dance.
