Shezad Dawood Selected for Frieze Live 2019

Shezad Dawood has been selected to present his performance piece University of NonDualism as part of Frieze Live 2019 from October 3-6. Dawood’s work draws on the work of Bangladeshi modernist architect Muzharul Islam, who combined the lessons of western modernism with a Bengali architectural language.


It will also feature dancers (wearing costumes by up-and-coming designer Priya Ahluwalia) weaving through a backdrop of fabric hangings, and will be soundtracked by music from electronica act Patten, inspired by Indian poet, musician and Nobel prize winner Rabindranath Tagore, and jazz musician Alice Coltrane.


Frieze London, Regent’s Park

Curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt

Costumes by Priya Ahluwalia of Studio Ahluwalia, musical score by patten, choreography by Adrienne Hart / Neon Dance. Dancers: Pepa Ubera and Devaraj Thimmaiah
