Following solo winter commissions for Newham London curated by Sonic Gaze, Esme Lewis-Gartside and I began collaborating in spring 2019.
Leave your vessels (2019) researches how movement and sound communicate — how we activate and navigate compositional processes for generating movement and sound, cooperating live in performance.
Together, we attend to and steward the transfer of energy between our mediums, unimpeded by language and hyper accelerated environments.
We intuitively overlap and layer processes for solo dance making and sound composition, attuning to shifting orientations within the embodied and psychoacoustic landscapes we create. We navigate sound and movement making, exploring how sonic ideas become embodied and transformed through movement.
We are interested in sonorous and physical, empathic relationships with audiences in performance spaces, and by exploring the permeability of intimacy that sound and movement offer, we cultivate hospitable environments that emphasise sensorial communication, pushing this mode of communication to its limits when we can.
Following our summer debut of Leave your vessels (2019) at The Yard, Hackney Wick, we performed at Guest Projects in the autumn.
Following their encounter with our performance at Guest Projects, artist Kaivalya Brewerton joined the collaboration to perform Leave your vessels (2020) at The Yard, Hackney Wick, as we approached the end of winter, almost one year on from the beginning of our collaboration. We expect to resume in time…
