Glasgow based choreographer and artist Louise Ahl will develop a new durational dance performance with a group of Scottish, English and Australian collaborators.
Heavy Metal will draw on a feminist approach to alchemy and transformation to explore matter and form. A durational work of up to six hours incorporating alchemical methods of repetition, distillation and decay within the choreographic process, the work will involve dance, scented sculptures, a vocal composition, elements of visual description and an integrated touch tour.
Ultimate Dancer (Louise Ahl’s dance alias) and collaborators will create imagery that transforms over time, working with slowly shifting bodies, sculptural material changing shapes and accumulating in the space, a drawn out vocal composition and the visual description continually changing the interpretation to evoke new imagery.
