Archiving Project:Our Unspoken
01 January 2021 00:00
In 2019 Critical Path invited me to join the 2nd year of the Dancing Sydney Archiving Project. I called for “unspoken” contributions and am still assembling them into an audio/video work for online presentation. This research project seeks to address ephemerality – its potentials and its problems – by finding, creating and reinvigorating old and new, public and private dance archives: not only the kind that exist in ephemera, text and objects, but also those that are produced and maintained within/through the body dancing. I attempted to find a common thread in the unspoken spaces that connect and differentiate us.
Supported by Critical Path, Sydney. Collaborating sound artist: Ash Baker.
