Aspects of Alterity (2012)

Choreography: Jolene Bailie
Lighting: Hugh Conacher
Excerpts from an ensemble work for five dancers, 45 minutes. Partially motivated by the imprint and aspect of intangible lived experiences and how these imprints and aspects can impact within our recollections so profoundly that the intangible memory over rides any tangible source or evidence of the event.


INSPIRO (2012)

Choreography by Jolene Bailie
Lighting and Media by Hugh Conacher
An ensemble work for 5 dancers, 45 minutes, motivated by the impact that wind turbines have on the flight paths of migratory birds.

Sensory Life, Infinite World (2010)

Choreography: Jolene Bailie
Lighting and Media: Hugh Conacher
Full length work for seven dancers, 70 minutes

Inspired by the seemingly limitless possibilities and co-operative relationships within plant and animal life. A conceptual and supportive ecosystem is created in the dance that is invented without the framing of regulated time, the natural pull of gravity or the weight of today's modern society. Creating a possible scenario for intelligence while adapting to a ripple effect of foreign matter.
