Over the past few weeks I have been meeting with Rosanna Irvine to develop an element for the performance project Breath Pieces. This aspect of the project will premiere at Tramway in Glasgow on Saturday 23rd June.
Breath Pieces draws on Eastern breath practices – including martial arts and yoga – to investigate the material and energetic qualities of breath. Conceived as an expanded choreographic project, it operates across art forms in the creation of multiple pieces. In each piece the actuality of the breathing breath is the driving force for the visceral emerging of kinetic, sonic and visual imagery. The event at Tramway brings together many of the pieces in an immersive performance experience. Each piece is distinct though at times overlapping or interacting with other pieces. Audience is mobile. Breath is everywhere.
The work is part of an ongoing research project Breath Pieces by Rosanna Irvine.
