A CONTINUOUS Touring Network performance by Janine Harrington and Co-workers
Satelliser: a dance for the gallery is a durational performance work for an intergenerational group of artist coworkers.
Over the course of the day coworkers cycle through the layered labours of moving, speaking, listening and resting, holding buoyant space for conversation to emerge between each other and gallery visitors. As coworkers subtly alter their spatial configurations in response to the visitors’ movements, they play with the orientation relationships between performance, visitor and space and the kinds of conversations these can support.
This is an unfolding conversational and movement practice relaxed in presentation. The conversation will reflect the speakers’ interests and life experiences and is not limited in scope or theme but will be modulated according to who is in the room. Visitors are invited to join the conversation, leave and return at will.
CONTINUOUS is partnership between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead) and Siobhan Davies Studios. Taking dance into gallery spaces across the UK, it seeks to advance the creation, presentation and development of audiences for experimental contemporary dance within visual arts contexts.
