Title of work

Transducer

Synopsis

In developing this work I thought about how we drive our emotions through language & physicality, and questioned if there are limitations weighing heavily on our understanding of someone’s exact physical or emotional state?   Can we read between the lines & get a clear picture of what each other feels? How much energy is pushing us apart or pulling us together? Do we assist it or do we resist?

I have called the work Transducer, a device that converts one type of energy to another, and reflected this in the energy and focus which becomes visible between the performers. The eruptions that take place and release from the body create a spasmodic and unsettling style, which pulses and bounces between the dancers, becoming a contagious and erratic eruption of virtuosic movement.
