I THINK IT’S A BLURRY IMAGE OF A PERSON.
I THINK IT’S A VASE OF FLOWERS ON A TABLE.
I THINK IT’S A PERSON WEARING A COLORFUL BLANKET.
I THINK IT’S A GROUP OF PEOPLE LYING ON A BED AND THEY SEEM 😐.
I CAN’T REALLY DESCRIBE THE PICTURE BUT I DO SEE PLASTIC, CONTAINER, BAG.
This is one work made up of 11 one-hour performances, overlapping over six hours. Individual performances do not have specific tickets, audiences can enter between noon and 5pm every 30 minutes and stay for an hour.
This is the latest work in my Configurations series which orbits around the idea of care as an aesthetic, choreographic and political practice. As a negotiation of constantly fluctuating needs, capacities and interests. And in particular, care that is disengaged, reluctant or otherwise complicated and with problems.
Part of the SPILL OPEN, supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. The piece is being supported by Arts Council England, Roehampton University, Sadlers Wells and ArtsAdmin.
"Humans are not mere brains in vats. We are living, moving creatures, and this fact matters for not only for how we think about ourselves, but also how we think about thinking itself. We consider dance’s contribution to philosophical debates about knowledge. What can we learn from dance? And can we learn through dance? Might dance itself be unique way of knowing?"
