    About this event


    Spawn forms part of Rebecca's ongoing research into dance as an equally practical and speculative force. Working with fiction to move beyond the stalemates of the present - creating small openings to the new, unnamable and undefinable.

    What if the body is actually getting bio-hacked when its in movement? Through enacting gestures from different sense realms could we unlock portals to time travel? Could dance be the conduit in the search of a materiality for feeling and thinking the non-human and other forms unknowable to human sensing?

    An assemblage of movement spawns a choreographic map of citations, an echo palette of influences, surfacing briefly only to disappear, resisting legibility, appearing to be in no discernible location or time. Multiple. Everywhere. Nowhere. Here and halfway. The learned. The inherited. The implanted and the absorbed - everything is in the swamp. The dance enacts both its own memories and those of others with a gauze-like scrim of haze, between the two.

    NAT GRANT | Momentum: Chapala

    Momentum: Chapala is the most recent in an ongoing series of cumulative sound works created since 2012. This particular project was conducted in residency at 360 Xochi Quetzal in Chapala, Mexico, in 2018/19. A short composition was created each day of the month-long residency, comprising field recordings and found sounds, digitally collaged. At the end of the residency all the recordings were re mixed into a 30 minute piece. The Momentum series is as a durational sonic journaling project, creating portraits of place and time through listening.
