Nest - Field Site - T67363662"Nest is a little ritual - I make my body a temporary home, a little being makes a temporary home in me. It is a strange and mysterious encounter. We carry each other about, though we have not yet met. Meanwhile I build a nest. I gather my thoughts, feelings encounters with the world outside and inside, which often orbit around the unknown "human being" forming inside me. Transformation becomes a survival necessity. Is it Love... this little unravelling which is happening to me?"

Double Bill - T01566866566Jennifer-Lynn Crawford: Elvis, Kika, Candy - "I do not know Jennifer-Lynn very well. I know she mumbles jokes to herself, she usually dresses in greys, blues and blacks, quite low key, she likes breathing and also smoking." Jennifer-Lynn moves through an obstacle course, encountering different aspects of her inner and outer worlds including boredom, happiness, fascination, discomfort, aspiration and imagination. Jennifer-Lynn studied at Quinte Ballet School and School of Toronto Dance Theatre. Her choreographic work has been performed in Holland, Toronto, London and most notably as a finalist in Stuttgart’s 9th International Solo Tanz Theatre Festival. She has performed extensively with Hofesh Shechter’s deGENERATION tour and participated in the Siobhan Davies’ Bank Project (2007). Anushiye Yarnell: Is this me.. or else? - "I search amidst the wreckage of a dance, for something, in a self-defective moment resorting to a Jungian personality test, for some concrete piece of myself. Back and forth, it’s always the same - I keep changing, becoming lost, a familiar, forgetful, self-undoing motion."

Massive Water/Bubble Writing (On Heavenly Love)/Pas de Deux (with Shopping Trolley) - T467589053Shirotama Hitsujiya: Massive Water - "I don’t want to die. I don’t believe in the existence of heaven. I want to be zombie. But someone told me that we all figure out the meaning of love when we get to heaven." The artistic director of Tokyo’s Yubiwa Hotel (previous shows at Chapter include Candies - Girlish Hardcore and Exchange), Shirotama Hitsujiya’s work aims to seek and suggest new views and images of society, the world and women. Her performances focus on human desires, sexuality, violence and the instinct for food, life and death. In 2006, she was named by Newsweek as one of Japan’s 100 most influential women. Davida Hewlett: Bubble Writing (On Heavenly Love) - Davida Hewlett attempts to present a performance lecture exploring ‘what is heavenly love?’ while she looks after her daughter and does lots of other things. She poses questions to an expert panel including an altruistic and very active Christian who finds joy in helping others, and a furry-legged singing feminist with a PhD on Kate Bush. There will also possibly be a bit of singing and dancing thrown in. Hewlett works in various combinations of video, performance, writing, and music. Her work is often playful and humorous, context responsive and collaborative. Anushiye Yarnell: Pas De Deux (with shopping trolley) "Two bodies - one human, sometimes a woman... and the other sometimes a shopping trolley." I am as hungry as a cage - A haloed dinosaur for a futuristic age - I want to fly away as much as the secret manoeuvres of my shopping trolley - I am your slave - in this wilderness - You are my angel (Forever - for convenience)Choreographer Shirotma Hitsujiya (Massive Water). Choreographer Davida Hewlett (Bubble Writing). Choreographer Anushiye Yarnell (Pas De Deux).
