unstable landscapes

This group work was created for students in the Tanzfabrik Berlin Intensive program.

The piece evolved from research into movement methods in different physical relationships to the floor - allowing for example the direction of travel in space to be independent from the specific movements of the body itself (i.e. Moonwalk).  The aim was to score the forces and directions coming from the space and ground in such a way to create the effect that the group of bodies is being moved rather than focusing on individual physical choices or specific movements.

 

An inspiration to the physicality of the work came from the phenomena of natural forces passing through geological landscapes in various temporalities.
