Space, Place, Movement: 2016

Space and Performance: Projects

July 1, 2016 Leave a comment

Since returning from Prague and Utrecht in 2015, life, in its dual guises of death and birth, has intervened, but still plans for a new project have been developing.

First, though: in April – May 2016 I was commissioned to create an Interactive Installation for Joan Clevillé Dance, co-designed with Joan, to tour with their piece, ‘Plan B for Utopia.’

 

See more about the piece, here: http://www.joanclevilledance.com/portfolio/plan-b-for-utopia/

Had a wonderful time as their ‘Rural Touring Engagement Dramaturg,’ taking the installation to its first 2 dates , in Aberdeenshire, flexibly re-constructing it for each new venue. It proved itself to work beautifully and I am very excited that it will be touring with them again, later this year and early in 2017.

And what about that new project idea that I mentioned?

Well, currently, I am developing ideas for a partnership performance piece, involving dance, neolithic sites, a digital production collaboration: it’s all just ideas until we get some funding, but watch here for updates.

Life is really very interesting…..

Woop, woop! Well, only a week since I promised updates and here’s the first one: got the first baby step in the funding chain, see it here:

This will let me work on digital ideas development with the excellent Malath Abbas http://www.malathabbas.com/ of Biome Collective “…to undertake discussions exploring the possibility of digitally documenting outdoor, site-sensitive, contemporary dance promenade performance. The aim is to propose the means to reproduce any given performance piece, as a ‘ghost’ of the original performance, for later audiences to experience, crucially, on the original outdoor site.”

1 This development process will run from now until September. Once the principle of the technique is worked out, it will be ready for the next step: to be refined by being woven into practical proposals.

2 These proposals would come from the Research and Development process which by September would – I hope – be funded.

3 Then comes the third funding application, for resources to finally carry out ‘The Actual Project,’ next year…. Might need a New Blog Page on this site for that, I think.

Onward & upward. Watch this space. Note to self: Must try to stay calm.

 

January 2017 and Friday 13th, so everything is possible…

The wonderful Joan Cleville Dance are touring Plan B for Utopia again, in February, taking my interactive installation with them. *Happy face*
