Suspended between above and below – a journey from spirit to flesh. This solo was the first of 3 solos to explore transformation between human and animal and to research the meeting of movement and experimental voice.


Conceptually, I was inspired by Luce Irigaray's essay 'Divine Women' in Sexes and Genealogies' and I was researching a physical approach to questions around transcendence and immanence.


This piece questioned the assumed hierarch and seperation of flesh and spirit.. this results in fragmentation... a wounded animal.
