(re) Build is the culminating performance of a week long residency between Hagley Dance Company and USA-based contemporary dance company, Bodyart. The third in a five part series (The Decay Project), this movement based film and live performance is born out of broken down and/or decayed spaces in our everyday landscape, in this film uses the ruins of 2011’s earthquake damaged remains as a jumping off point. From natural disasters to spaces left in ruin by years of neglect, The Decay Project as a whole finds beauty in unexpected places through artistic collaborations. Rather than focusing on the issues that caused these stages of decay, it is the project’s goal to focus on beauty through rebuilding, sustaining or reflecting. In today’s social climate beauty tends to have rigid constraints and this project seeks to shine a new light on unconventional beauty in both the space and the performers. Join us for an evening of movement in unusual spaces.
