This is a short excerpt of a longer piece shot at a working industrial port in Poole, Dorset, with dancer choreographer Cathy Seago (Merce Cunningham Dance, now Snr Lecturer, Contemporary Choreographic Practice, Winchester University). This work uses ideas of surface and breath to link the location with the dancer. It’s a sensorial, physical response to a very particular coastal environment. As with my earlier work, I take large, dramatic environments and focus in on smaller details, creating an intimate, close up encounter with a location. This closeness is interrupted using changes in rhythm and pace: alternating between faster paced movement, to meditative, quieter moments.
