Igshaan Adams

Garage's collaboration with Igshaan Adams has proven to be creatively productive from all angles. His crew lay down an ink covered plastic sheet with a white canvas secured atop. This is followed by the dancers improvising or executing known choreography on the canvas, leaving imprints that are used to create the artwork. `The first try out happened in John and Alfred's back garden at number 50 Hibuskus street, O'okiep. The two subsequent sessions both occurred at the Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town.
