‘TIPPING POINT’ : live art installation 10-11 December


‘TIPPING POINT’ is a live art installation for two dancers and musical materials. Employing sheet music and loose piano keys, the dancers appear as two facets of a divided self. This twenty-minute work draws upon an anti-virtuosic aesthetic in order to question the habitual appearance of physical effortlessness found within the concert hall.

Both dancers exhibit moments of extraordinary physical skill while at the same time announcing, through vocalization and exaggerated breathing patterns, the intense proposition of pushing one’s own corporeal boundaries.

The name ‘TIPPING POINT is therefore derived from a sense of being off balance, or out of control. The piece provides a visual link between music and breath on the one hand and death and silence on the other.

‘TIPPING POINT’ will be live in the Amphitheatre, Riverside East 10-11 December.

This performance is brought to you by the Cultural Animateur-in-Residence as part of ‘Open House’ 2014
