PURE LIGHT "“ dancer Tess de Quincey; music Pimmon; video Martin Fox (approx 20 mins)

As a homage to the fluorescent light installations of American minimalist artist Dan Flavin (1933-96), a space is sculpted by light that reverberates with colour and explores impermanence. The human figure is revealed within lines that repeat and transform into a series of icons to then seep into shimmering surfaces and architectural planes. Fields of visual and sound particles form and reform, constantly reframing and stretching the body into ambiguous shapes. Subtle tones combine with ironic twists to mock tradition and capture pure feeling.

MOTHS & MATHEMATICS "“ dancers Peter Fraser & Tess de Quincey; music Warren Burt; visual animation Boris Morris Bagattini (approx 40 mins)

In an unfolding of the space between two beings, mathematical relationships are explored. The bodies are shaped by an environment of visual animation that reveals microscopic realms and catapults into a monumental universe of immense scale. The musical composition exposes a layering of mathematical structures that echo musical traditions from Bach to Conlon Nancarrow and Ryoji Ikeda whilst exploring new forms through sound, body and light. Rigorous and simple, yet complex and multifaceted, this is a world of correlations and disturbances, where tempestuous weather and empathetic calms shape vital rhythms and harmonics.
