A year has passed and it is again time to throw the wonders of dance and experimental film into the one space of performance. At what point does the boundary between the performance space and projection space delineate and part, and at which does it converge? If both dance and film co-exist within the one space neither can be considered as anything other than performance and so therefore inhabit that space in equilibrium. The tactile experience of the projected image has become sterile amongst the technology of the digital age and this thus misleads about the depth at which its physical presence resides within a performative arena.
Equilibrium of the Tactile is the fourth in a series of exploration into the combination of Contact Improvisation Dance performance and experimental film and video. Sitting at neither end of dance as pure performance or that of expanded cinema, these events proffer up moments of exhilaration in their unexpected points of synchronization, syncopation and beauty
Richard Tuohy, Dianna Barrie
Experts in the film guages of 8mm and 16mm film Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie hand-process their own film, which thus gives them the ultimate freedom to explore all aspects of experimentation with the film strip. Tuohy first started creating experimental film in the 1980s and has since been honing his craft of working with the optics and mechanisms of the film camera. Joined by Barrie the pair make a undeniable force of exceptional talent and skill.
For Equilibrium of the Tactile, Tuohy and Barrie will be working film through multi-projection, long loops, and with optical manipulations in a loose structure to allow the freedom to improvise with the film in their contribution of performance.
Doors open at 8pm sharp with the performance starting immediately.
