In the Gap Between, 2019. 

Live Performance, approx. 15 mins. 

Informed by traditional synchronised dance structures such as Corps de Ballet (Body of the Ballet) and The Chorus Line; 'The the Gap Between' explores the body in motion and utilises key characteristics of these structures (moving in sync, single file arrangement, repetition, pace & pauses) as a means to explore the body as an image.

Tasked with creating a consistent image, performers move in a synchronised queue-like formation, and reproduce the movement presented by the performer in front. With movement filtering through each body, 'In the Gap Between' embraces the slippages and improvisations that occur when information is lost in translation.
