The Conversation Revolved

“Watching rehearsals I became acutely aware of my own position within the room. Depending on where I stood, my perspective framed the dancers movement and altered the spatial relationships between them. The choreography became an almost infinite, revolving series of potentialities, only fixed into certainty by my observation. As Werner Heisenberg stated, in reference to something quite different but strangely relevant, ‘…separation of the observer from the phenomenon to be observed is no longer possible…’.  As an observer I became the fifth circle. In response I wanted to translate this experience into something familiar, a narrative, a conversation. A mechanism for the fracturing of a single event into multiple potentialities.” Sam Collins
