Human Studies (2016)
Footage taken during Musée de la Danse, a performance installation conceived and facilitated in my final year at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
On a timed loop, the humans have the freedom to pick from a range of activities: counting money, personal care, making tea, watching television, drawing, sleeping or the wrapping of gifts. Activities that form the make up of our everyday routine, are punctuated by the perpetual sound of an alarm forcing them to move on, to carry on living. Performed in a white studio, the installation asks audiences to try and view these mundane activities in a new light, observing the movement that the tasks provoke, and how they shed new meaning on moving.
