Assembly is a live gallery work exploring shifts in relation between individual and collective bodies. Its changing configurations respond to those who come to see it; each time a spectator enters the gallery a performer will join the performance, leaving it when the same spectator departs the room, creating groupings of constant variation. Once called to the space performers take on a series of simple shapes and interactions in an investigation of how other people can appear to us.
Assembly was presented at Nottingham Contemporary as part of Nottdance Festival 2013. Produced by Dance4. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
