Dates and times
Breath Pieces - part performance, part installation - comprises multiple components intermingling in an immersive experience of the breathing breath. The premiere at Tramway includes performance, sound, video, drawing and spoken text.
Breath Pieces draws on Eastern breath practices - including martial arts and yoga - to investigate the material and energetic qualities of breath. Conceived as an expanded choreographic project, it operates across art forms in the creation of multiple pieces. In each piece the actuality of the breathing breath is the driving force for the visceral emerging of kinetic, sonic and visual imagery. The event at Tramway brings together many of the pieces in an immersive performance experience. Each piece is distinct though at times overlapping or interacting with other pieces. Audience is mobile. Breath is everywhere.
