Chosen by internationally acclaimed artist & experimental filmmaker Vivienne Dick, ‘Delirious Rhythm 1936-2017is a personal selection of films that inspires her work. The films in this programme are about anarchic moments, about being alive to music, to rhythm, and the value of staring into space.

In an era obsessed with targets and prescriptive living, the significance of daydreaming and dawdling is often overlooked. This programme serves as a reminder of the important role played by chance interaction and sheer nerve in creativity. Including works by Vivienne alongside a host of other remarkable artists, this exhilarating programme foregrounds films that relate to the street, the domestic and the unconscious.
