Spaces 4 (1981)
Spaces 4 was the first of six collaborations with Heinz Dieter Pietsch. These collaborations were to provide some of the most original and successful of her works. For this piece Pietsch was to provide low right-angled fragments, painted white; defining four distinct spaces around and through which the dancers moved. The work stood as a dialogue between movement and construction. Performed in silence, it was perhaps far nearer to performance art than to contemporary UK dance as it was then understood.
