The Niche series is devoted to the choreographed body and its intricate occupation of space. Fantasies on habit, habitat and habitation, this work has traversed film, video, live performance, gallery installation and international collaboration.
Part of this series is the performance, Fine Line Terrain. For 5 dancers the piece explores the spaces we inhabit. The performance space becomes dissected with white lines, creating geometric ‘houses ’ that connect, entangle and ultimately collapse. Intimate relationships are framed and mapped by lines, highlighting the precariousness of our relationship to the world and to each other. This is dance that explores the subtle intricacies of our relationship to the space around us.
Fine Line Terrain was performed in the Spotlight program of APAM in Adelaide 2004 and represented at APAP in New York 2004. Sydney Opera House presented this work in a sell-out season JUNE 2004.
