ATTENDING SPACES

Attending Spaces - the performance is the first in a series of site specific performances within a research project that investigates the city as a stage with the tools of choreographers.
Social interactions define our built environment as we value the terrain by its bearing on our benefits. We move about and exercise our relations through the many tasks that make our everyday lives. Task making is the choreographed investigation of the everyday situations. Architecture is the artistic manifestation of the material contours where the situations take their place.
In the performance four characters will perform a never-ending commonplace task – a Sisyphean act. The performers will work with off cuts of concrete canvas, normally used for geo-tech projects in large landscapes. The material will be manipulated throughout the performance.
Attending Spaces will be played in Testbed 1 in Bermondsey under the vaults of the long railway viaduct between Greenwich and London Bridge Station.

The Danish Arts Foundation and Dreyers Fond supports the initiative.
