Dance Video for Global Water Dances 2021
London, UK - The Global Dance, at a Distance
While technology has temporarily filled our physical gaps due to social distance in London and elsewhere, we have engaged into dialogues beyond geographical boundaries, showing human network contains an incredible vast potential for self-generating power. The power of one's heart can reach and nourish dry abandoned sites with warmth, empathy, water. It is our shared humanity manifested through community dance, that can get us to celebrate life. Life is beautiful when it is made of human value, and so is water.
SCALES OF INTANGIBILITY
A collaborative project with artist in residence Susan Eyre at Chisenhale Art Place - Exploring the nature of the Dodecahedron and movement within it.
The project draws upon Susan’s enquiry on the nature of the Universe and its particles. Referring to Dante's description of the universe as concentric circles, Susan was interested in seeing movement representing the very outer circles also appear to be enclosed by the inner circles and the relationship that this enfolding space has to a 3-sphere and Poincaré dodecahedral space as a motif for the universe. Plato thought the human being in body and soul is actually a microcosm of the cosmic macrocosm, that our virtue and our flourishing is rooted in mathematical harmony. As not much has been said by Laban about this Platonic Solid, I have collected theoretical material then used a somatic approach to carve movements by investigating in my feelings and perceptions. To further this I referred to the Trefoil Knots, the notions of Planes, Shape and Space Intent to adapt to the Content and Container of the Dodec, to name a few. The video post editing has overlapped images from the cloud chamber and of my moving body. These has finally been displayed in a hydroponic tent for the artist’s installation.
