Inspired by the original choreographic score by Lucinda Childs and the exhibited artefacts at Backlit Gallery, Dance4 has invited Sally Doughty to make a response to the Einstein on the Beach exhibition within the gallery spaces.
Hourglass is a response to the exhibition and specifically a section from the original opera score by Lucinda Childs entitled Knee Play Three. The score itself looks like a sort of cross-stitch tapestry. It’s a response to the score and the artefacts in the space generally and the space itself to an extent.
Hourglass was performed at Backlit Gallery in May 2015.
