As we all buckle under the weight of the collapsing system, can we slip through the cracks and re-integrate, repurpose and reorganise in order to be more-than-human?
Spirit Compass is a live dance installation, an island and a temple of sorts which you are invited to inhabit and watch the movement go by.
Premiering at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, this new commission responds to the increasing crisis and complexity of the 21st century. It searches for a remedy or an antidote to the over-complicated, never-ending bureaucracy, and the sedentary environments and technologies that are submerging us.
Commissioned by CONTINUOUS, a partnership between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and Siobhan Davies Dance, London.
Supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, by John Ellerman Foundation and by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
With thanks to Dance Base, Wainsgate Dances, Yorkshire Dance, Cove Park and Leeds Dance Partnership Fellowship.
