ARTIST STATEMENT

One Person Can Fill a Room

Movement and Space go hand in hand, and when referring to a person dancing alone, the space encompassing them becomes their company. This space acts as a recorder of movement, remembering where they have been, transforming and filling the room with their body.


This year everyone has experienced isolation. Throughout those times of solitude many of us would have engaged in dance or watched others do so through a screen. Whether it be to pass time, lift the spirits, or get some movement into our days – dancing has allowed us to get in touch with ourselves in times where it hasn’t been possible to do so with others.


The use of distorted colour works with layered sounds, figures and video to depict energy in the body, its movement through space, and the internal experience of being engrossed in a sweaty solo dance. Where time slips away and the present is prioritised.


One Person Can Fill a Room.
