perch is a solo which investigates the process of forming, returning to and deepening the relationship with movement material over an extended period of time. The dance explores movement in and between temporary dwellings and plays with energetic, textural shifts. It was formed accumulatively over several years in the context of a doctoral research project exploring the relationship between Authentic Movement and dance-making. The work was eventually performed at dusk to small audiences across the months of September 2018 and April 2019.
