Since the mid-seventies, Rosemary Butcher has been the UK's most consistently radical and innovative choreographer, developing her own movement language and choreographic form. Much of her inspiration is allied with the concepts and ideas in contemporary visual art. Over the last twenty years her work has been presented in over forty countries and she is recognised internationally as one of the UK's leading choreographers. After Kaprow comprises of two individual but strongly related works - The Silent Room and Book of Journeys. Conceptually, the pieces look at the notion of women inhabiting interiors and how these rooms are witness to the activities of the women over time. The performer represents the women who have lived out their lives amongst the changing premise of the ?room' - the repetitive, ritualistic and habitual movements that occupy the space. After Kaprow takes the form of a dual-screen installation in dialogue with a live performer, suggesting vectors of transition between past/present, and present/future. Book of Journeys draws on the history imbued in the rooms themselves ? a monastery and ruined castle. The film weaves a journey that moves from past to future on one side and future to past on the other, overlapping in the present.
