Combining dance, sound and installation, Deepspace is a mesmerising, intimate performance that examines our curiosity for the unknown. Award-winning choreographer and performer James Batchelor and visual artist Annalise Rees spent two months at sea studying remote volcanic islands in the sub-Antarctic. From their experiences Deepspace was born.
Playing at the intersection of art and science, the body is taken to the extremities of remoteness and proximity, connectedness and isolation, certainty and uncertainty.
Chisenhale Dance is East London’s champion of risk and experimentation in dance and performance. We’re excited to present the London premiere of Deepspace as the first in a new series of international guest performances.
The audience is encouraged to move through the space with the dancers.
There will be some seating available but it is not encouraged. If you require a seat for any reason, please let staff know when you arrive.
Presented by Chisenhale Dance, in collaboration with Hackney Showroom. James Batchelor and Collaborators are currently in residence at Dance4, Nottingham. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the City of Melbourne through Arts House. Developed through Arts House’s CultureLAB with the assistance of Creative Victoria. For more information about the artist, visit James Batchelor
