Name: Geraldine Gallavardin
Lives in: London, England
Occupation: Actor and Concept Artist
Unique traits: “Lab 451 is a platform for multi-talented international artists that explore performance as one of their versatile practices. On a journey with raconteurs sprinkling an inch of conceptual art, raw happenings, soundscape & experimental impromptus music accompanied by merry troubadours, poets declaiming their thirst, wicked opera singers, theatreoholics; performers of all kind feasting on the possibilities to encapsulate their unframed vision of our era” The idea of Lab 451 is that of a moveable laboratory for international artists to express & emphasize through their own unique art form; a language, whom as a Freedom embodies the way we see & represent the world around us.
