About the Project  

Our collaborative process involves sound/movement, brown paper (and the sound and movement of brown paper), architecturally informed spatial design, and digital projection. We are exploring contingency, possibility, and implication through several disciplines, in an installation-like format.  

 

Through researching what it is to create work for which the “product” and venue remain speculative—digital/live, performance/installation, gallery/theatre—scale, medium, and the relationships between disciplines take on new generative qualities. Dancers and musicians occupy a speculative world of half-formed and in flux (re)presentations.

 

This creation period involves a DanceLab through The Dance Centre, which we are exploring as a hybrid space; fertile, adaptive, optimistic.
