Tuning Up

                  Tuning Up
             Relaxation and contraction
             Alertness and control

Fundamental movements of walking, running, swaying, skipping and galloping

Tuning Up
performance (with Samuel Chappel - piano), 2013
Tuning Up combines an orated script, piano improvisation and choreography of moveable textile screens, text and images as a live performance.

The script explores the pedagogy of music and movement, alongside fragments of fictional texts, poems and stream of consciousness. The disjointed narrative is accompanied by live piano improvisation and the staging of moveable textile screens with text works and images, broken down into 'scenes' relating to each passage in the script.

The work sits somewhere between concrete poetry, lecture and dance - crossing these boundaries and exploring the possibilities for musical accompaniment to voice.
