A Mountain of Black Stones

Surface Area Dance Theatre (UK) and Beton7 gallery present the new solo performance by the choreographer Nicole Vivien Watson in collaboration with visual artist Yorgos Maraziotis and sound artist Klunks.

The work can be described as a somatic live performance, which rests upon the interplay of sculpture, performed movement and sound. 

The environment of the performance is conditioned by a large, spatially - dominate quantity of coal, located in centre space of the gallery. Buried within the sculpture are four independent stereo units, amplifying a composed collection of sounds, constructed from a series of real - world and synthetic sounds, dissociated from the living environment of the gallery space. Thereby making a distinction between contexts that are physically known and those that are abstracted. 

Performances are choreographed to evoke metaphorical meaning, this experienced individually, by the audience, from the first moments of encountering the sculpture.  The intention of the performance is to facilitate an immersive sensory environment, whereby the parameter of the viewer’s awareness becomes blurred, evoking a state of being, that plays between the sensual, physical and affective.
