viola sunrise

In late 2006 early 2007 I had a chunk of Australia Council funding to research and develop a new performance installation called Crevice. The project was with Cormac Lally (video), David Corbet (sound), Shannon Bott (dramaturgy) and Kristin Green (architect). It was ambitious for sure, and I was never able to get the money together to do any more development beyond stage 1 (or perhaps I never tried).

The design looked like this (and we built and tested this design):

And here’s a little snippet of video (that I don’t think was ever used) that Cormac Lally shot and edited, and that I stumbled across the other day as I went through some old files. The filename was crevice16_viola sunrise_25%.mov.

full responsibility

Last year I had the pleasure of spending time at the University of Alabama for a short residency with choreographer and filmmaker Rebecca Salzer. We made a short film called Full Responsibility:

Sincerity takes practice.

between faces

Last month I performed a ‘desktop presentation’ as part of Light Moves Festival of Screendance in Limerick. Over the years I’ve played a lot with ways of presenting ideas to audiences, and this is a first attempt to use the computer desktop as a live site of performance.

The presentation explores the ways in which mobile phones are changing choreographic thinking and practice.

we took photographs

In May this year, Paul Hughes, Hamish MacPherson and I had a residency at S’ALA in Sassari, Italy. There were no planned outcomes from the work we did together but we ended up writing a document in which we reflect on our experiences.

The document is a PDF and is called We Took Photographs:

idiot-syncrasy once again

Igor and Moreno’s remarkable dance called Idiot-Syncrasy is being presented once again at The Place in London. It’s on Tuesday 9 October 2018, and you live in London (or nearby), and you haven’t seen it before, or want to see it again, now’s your chance.

Igor and Moreno bounce out the pleasures and perils of unison with one another; they tease out where idiosyncrasy and love lie within the rhythms of human life.1
