perch adaptation project for X Dance Festival

kc-window-dive_perch_adaptation_1

perch is a solo performed by Katye Coe.  It is an adaptation of an existing work by Amy Voris.

During the period of lockdown last year, Katye and Amy adapted the work to Katye’s home environment and recorded it on video.

perch is a dance about temporary states and locations and the movement in-between these things.  It is about the process of building a home for the future — of homing — while feeling haunted by the past.  First and foremost however perch is a practice, performed regularly by one person, for a place.  The movement score shifts between states of groundedness and flight and hovers over the transitions between these states.  With each practice the work bears witness to its immediate conditions and, in so doing, with each practice the work subtly adapts and evolves.  In this way, the ‘form’ of the work offers a means of simultaneously practicing holding on to and letting go of what is known about the work and the world that it moves through.
