Temporary Title, 2015, experiments with the process of pattern recognition, exploring forms which are not quite distinguishable as human - yet not completely anything else - and the idea of movement as a continuous process of transformation. The performers transition between strange and familiar forms and formations, challenging our perceptions of the human body and its capacity for physical expression and representation. The piece does not utilise props or costumes and the performers are naked throughout the exhibition. This neutrality allows the transitory movements and conversations to remain the core of the visitor’s experience.
