About the Weather (1996)

About the Weather

Overview

About the Weather was a 50 minute minimalist performance for two dancers combining live performance and animated slide projections.

Further Details

The piece centred on a simple series of pedestrian movements (6 movements per performer) to create a meditation on the human figure and its relationship to the landscape. Sequences were choreographed for the extended stage i.e. the physical stage space together with the space created through perspective by the projected imagery.
