No Place at the Nishi Gallery

Between draft-steady wings and the slow pealing of stones, No Place is the long-awaited dance, video and sound installation piece by award-winning Choreographer Adelina Larsson, a subtle and mesmerising purgatory woven from the lives of four women coming to terms with their basic struggles. 

 The audience are encouraged to explore and move through the custom-designed Nishi Gallery space as these women are drawn further into the vivid – though perhaps misleading – memory of their bodies: through the innumerable movements and reflexes accrued by their individual loves, labours and losses.

Pictures of the rehearsals and performance of No Place in the Nishi Gallery, Canberra in November 2014. A really satisfying, longer-term exploration in the theme of hypnogogia. Video for this project became increasingly pared back the deeper I got into rehearsals and the concrete gallery space.  It created space for the choreography as opposed to the improvised movement from the last development, a frosty container for dancers and their shadows.
