Part of Dance International Glasgow

World Premiere

This durational performance will take place in our front gallery as part of our Dance in the Gallery strand. You are welcome to stay for the duration, or to drop in and out during opening hours

This new performance will draw on a feminist approach to alchemy and transformation to explore matter and form. A durational work of six hours, six minutes and six seconds with slowly shifting bodies, a drawn out vocal composition, and sculptural material changing shapes and accumulating in the space.

Created in collaboration and performed with Angela Goh and Michelle Hannah.

ACCESS: Hevi Metle has an integrated touch tour and Audio Description description which will be performed live by Juliana Capes. It's an alternative form of description that functions as an interpretation element. The description comes through the speakers for all to hear.

A Tramway co-production with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. Further support from Dance4, The Work Room, Siobhan Davies Dance and the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

This project is informed by a period of choreographic research residencies with Critical Path at Tasdance and the Drill in Australia (funded by Creative Scotland and Australia Council for the Arts).
