Students of St George's British International School of Rome are staging a commissioned performance at the capital's MAXXI Museum of 21st Century Art on 27 September, at 17.00.
The students' work is part of TEDx Transmedia 2012, the conference which gathers speakers to discuss innovative ways of media thinking, and an offshoot of TED – the nonprofit organisation devoted to "Ideas Worth Spreading" that began in California 25 years ago.
Over the past few months the St George's students have been working towards a performance that explores the museum space in new ways – through art, dance and music – and the show involves over 40 visual artists, dancers, singers, performers and musicians.
The students' performance, which opens the TEDx event, has been choreographed by dancer Rachael Mossom and the head of the school's art department Greg Morgan, who promises the show will "take you on a journey that will transform and challenge your vision of the gallery experience.”
Held under the auspices of the European Broadcasting Union, TEDxTransmedia is the third edition to be held at the MAXXI.
The normal MAXXI ticket price of €12 applies, for more details see www.tedxtransmedia.com.
