Composure is an improvised creative practice which uses movement, dance and voice to negotiate a live engagement with the design of space, choreography, sound, and relationships of others present.
Composure is a 12-hour endurance piece; a platform which challenges our usual modes of performance as creators and dancers. We invite the audience to come in and out of the space, observing, influencing, and contributing to the work. Join us for a few minutes or stay for an hour. Come again to watch our progress!
Composure began as a student project in 2015 as an investigation of the mind and body in relation to others in the space and with the performance setting. The word 'Composure' in its literal sense, can be considered in two ways; verb and noun. This dyad is expressed in our performance, displaying the act of composing (space, sound, movement, score, relationships) and the way the performers are on stage; composed, ready, available, making the work with consideration and commitment.
This is a free event, no ticket required.
