Kirstie Simson will share her passion for the exploration of freedom through the solo she will present in this evening of dance improvisation.
Through the use of humour, eye contact, dialogue and proximity, the performer invites the audience to join her on a journey as she negotiates her way through present moment decision-making that is inherent in improvised performances. With light-hearted spontaneity this master performer affirms the fundamental positivity of life as she dances her way through this forty-five minute work, celebrating the depth of human connection and potentiality.
The performance will be followed by a short question and answer session with the artist.
This solo is dedicated to my mother Jean, who encouraged me to pursue my passion for dance.

4pm – 10.15pm
This six-hour, performative event explores how liminal space is created, experienced and shared, using repetitions of a phrase of movement and a 13th century song developed by Lou Laurens. Untitled 11 will use 10 years of layered recordings giving a unique soundscape. Come to observe, to be present within the space created. Use the space for mediation, prayer, contemplation. People who use movement as contemplation or prayer may wish to move rather than sit. This might be the last time untitled: holy hiatus happens in this format.
