Everywhere the Edges

How do we find a way to walk and move in this increasingly unstable world? How do we navigate change? Is there an ethos for living in precarity?  These questions drive Everywhere The Edges (ETE) in a soaring off-ground multinational dance project and performance installation.

How do we find a way to walk and move in this increasingly unstable world? How do we navigate change? Is there an ethos for living in precarity?  These questions drive Everywhere The Edges (ETE) in a soaring off-ground multinational dance project and performance installation. ETE is performed within, on, under, around – and created simultaneously with – a voluminous Janet Echelman net sculpture activated and transformed by five outstanding performers. The work is a synthesis of experimental dance, avant-garde circus, engineering, art installation, public art and social practice. 

When audiences enter ETE they will encounter a monumental, fluid, sculpture of three-layered, effervescently coloured, nets rising above their heads and cascading towards the ground. The sculpture provides 40 x 40 feet of air and ground performance area while audiences roam, rest, look up and through this wondrous sculpture for an intimate experience with the performers. Through the dancers’ movements and manipulations, the nets will change dramatically over the course of a 60-minute performance, accompanied by live music from New Hermitage. ETE emphasizes the beauty of the movement of the nets and the inherent stakes and dramatic conflicts that arise when human beings navigate such a challenging environment.
