Under, around, through, off, and repeat. The action of knitting repeated by bodies in space.
This project stitches together movement material from past works and reformats them, sort of like a photo album or indeed a patchwork quilt. The work which is part exhibition, part site-specific live performance, and part interactive workshop was created during the lockdown period following the outbreak of COVID-19, from the comfort of my own home. As part of the project I recruited 30 knitting volunteers as well as the 3 dancers, to create the ever expanding patchwork quilt.
