Over the summer Melbourne choreographer and dancer Shaun McLeod and I had some time to prepare a scratch performance for the Dance and Somatic Practices Conference at Coventry University.

Here’s a video of the performance (recorded by Carol Breen).

not for choreographic purposes

In the summer I was working with Eva Recacha in the studio at The Place in London and one of the piano chairs had a sign on it:

We all have objects that are clearly not for choreographic purposes and so I had some stickers made:

They are 4.5” x 2.7” (11.43cm x 6.86cm) and are essential kit for any choreographer. If you just drop me a line I’ll send you one or a set of four (just let me know) for free.

Last year screendance artist Katrina McPherson asked Owa Barua, Natalia Barua and me to be involved in a project that explored ideas to do with archives, memory, dance and film. We ended up making We Record Ourselves.

These last few weeks we’ve been working on an edit to be screened on the MediaWall at Bath Spa University starting on Thursday 8 June 2017.

This is a new version of We Record Ourselves specially edited for the Bath Spa MediaWall. The edit sustains the key themes of the original versions (remembering, forgetting, archives and dance) while exploring the possibilities of the scale of the MediaWall and the transient nature of its audiences.

The MediaWall edit is below but watching it here won’t be quite the same as the full scale version (more than 7m high)!
