Craft Victoria and Kuwaii are pleased to present Ruby Aitchison, Annie Gobel, Briarna Longville and Elise Drinkwater.
Choreographed by Briarna Longville, performed with Elise Drinkwater, and adorned with jewellery made by Ruby Aitchison and Annie Gobel in response to the 2018 MPavilion, a site-specific performance piece was developed. The two dancers performed a consistent phrase of dance material interrupted and distorted by the adornment of the jewellery. The piece entitled In Response brings together objects and bodies, the movements of the dancers responding to the forms and movements of the jewellery, also including the audience as they too were adorned.
The performance will be projected on loop at Kuwaii in Cathedral Arcade – just a short walk from where the work originated. This project is echoed in a parallel exhibition of the physical jewellery at Studio XL-XS at Docklands.
Opening night: Friday, 3 August 2018, 6:00 pm
