Talk Art special episode with WePresent!!!
We meet TED ROGERS, a multidisciplinary artist based in Margate working predominantly with movement. Ted explores the extremities of movement through the neurodivergent and non binary lens; plowing their unwavering and infectious energy into any and all mediums, with a particular focus on entertainment and the deeper emotional aspects of humanity.
This episode was recorded in front of a live audience within their debut solo show at Quench Gallery. They trained professionally in Musical Theatre before moving to London and finding nightlife, queer culture, gogo-dancing, drag, fashion, music and contemporary dance.
Ted's collaborations have included renowned contemporary artists such as: Rosie Hastings and Hannah Quinlan, Lindsey Mendick, Jenkin Van Zyl, Holly Blakey, Anthea Hamilton & Lucy Mcormick. Ted is currently the performance artist in Residence at Tracey Emin's TKE studios following a sell out commission to open the studios with a performance called "Valentine”.
