FRACTALE (2009) & -transire- (2010)

FRACTALE begins with a simple touch. Three dancers, standing on stage in swimwear, add layer upon layer of simple touches to become a constantly moving sculpture. Set to music from Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, this mesmerising trio evokes a sense of spirituality from the complex patterns created by its simple structure.

In -transire-, two dancers and two vocalists share the stage. Both couples follow a score which takes them on intimate yet separate journeys, from harmonious beginnings to the heightened energy of a trance-like state. Breadth and clarity give way to a frantic breakdown of flow as the performers seem to lose themselves in various states of consciousness – before calm descends and a sense of wonder settles.

Emmanuelle Vo-Dinh is a French choreographer of Vietnamese heritage. She founded her company, Sui Generis, in 1998. Frequently collaborating across art forms, Vo-Dinh’s work draws on many influences including scientific and gender research, and is often subtle and thoughtful. Sui Generis has been based in Rennes since 2004.

There will be a Post-show discussion on Tuesday 24

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill.

We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
