Two clips from the start and middle of the work. The work uses pauses and stillness throughout so one period of this in included in the first clip, the second clip shows more developed movement sequences. Full work can be viewed here: vimeo.com/224487540
I directed 20 min dance work, Contents in Touch, using structured improvisation and a text of mine exploring frustrated momentum and vulnerability of self encountered during a significant loss. The text refers to touch as structuring element in close relationships which can define each partner in relation to one another and related changes expressed physically following a significant loss.
It was made with the collaboration of Francesco Migliaccio, Marta Polak and Robyn Holder who created movement phrases in response to my text and sculptural work that I then structured into a whole and directed. I sourced these collaborators, selecting them from an open call for dancers with strong collaborative skills. The music was also selected by me.
