Inside The Sculpture
A daytime performance dance piece inside the sculpture -Figures Dancing by Don Frost- situated outside Market Hall / Peterborough Square. A variation from my ongoing creation Bone Stories with myself, Irèni Stamou, and dancer Dreda Blow. I believe this site-specific performance inside the sculpture, like the citys soul, is relevant as a metaphor for the sign of our times. From inside the sculpture, we see social change, we acknowledge the separation of the live arts during the pandemic crisis, feel the void, and long to create, perform, connect.
Reflecting a sign of our times, exposed, vulnerable and courageous, the dance takes different rhythms, dynamics, and forms like forces of nature, spiralling in an intertwining of dancer and sculpture as part of life. Like dance and nature, the sculpture invites us into its space to move from inside itself, step on the limbs and become part of it. In this landscape, we also reimagine, reorient, pivot and witness the audience and performer, between movement, presence and stillness as a healing process.
