Taking place over five days at ICA London The Tender Interval features performance, conversation, music and workshops, with work by Ella Finer, Hannah Catherine Jones, Lia Mice, Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome, Arjuna Neuman, object blue, Shelley Parker, rkss, Joseph Morgan Schofield, and Chooc Ly Tan.

The Tender Interval explores time as material; the body as instrument; and the frequencies between practising, playing, conducting and sounding as modes of world-making.

Drawing on the productive potential of absence, failure, stillness and silence as zones of potentiality and becoming, the programme is situated at the intersection of sound and motion as systemic fields of enquiry and vehicles for social and personal movements.

As time seems scarcer and scarcer in ever-accelerating conditions, The Tender Interval asks: What can queering the gap between the beats offer the tender intervals of our unscripted collective and social lives?
The Tender Interval is co-curated by Sarah Shin (New Suns) and ICA Curator Sara Sassanelli.

A five-day convening exploring the transformational qualities of sound and dance practices.
