Ultimate Dancer returns to Live Collision with YAYAYA AYAYAY. A new solo performance presented as part of a work in progress in Live Collision 2016, YAYAYA AYAYAY is a choreographic and multi-sensory journey into the complex nature of both emotional and physical darkness.

In 2015, Louise went into a darkness retreat for five days – a purpose-built room isolated from all light and sound. Ceremonial darkness as a shamanic tool is a classical method for accessing vibrant unconscious and super-conscious states. The experience was deeply transformative; at times hallucinogenic, emotionally moving, physically painful and has thoroughly inspired the creation of YAYAYA AYAYAY.

Choreography is generally understood to rely on the rules of time and space. YAYAYA AYAYAY will challenge and exhibit how our perceptions of time, space and choreography shift when in contact with sensory overload and deprivation. For Live Collision, Ultimate Dancer is presenting an active experiment with a local sound artist of this piece in development.

Artist Bio:
Louise Ahl is a Glasgow-based artist originally from Sweden, making experimental and choreographic performance work. Louise creates both solo and collaborative multi-art-form pieces. Her inspirations are rooted in shamanism, healing practices and existentialism. In 2010 Louise began making work with her performance persona Ultimate Dancer, who was born as a half-joke/half-critical/wholly-serious attempt to explode and lovingly re-manifest the art form of dance.
