Work­shops – a collec­tion of works:

At the centre of the stage-area, is a large, flat, circular mound of sand. The dance company Tread Boldly appear and start to disturb it. A 6‑minute video projec­tion of the same dancers, screened at the back of the stage-area, commences after the dancers have been on stage for a minute. The dancers then perform inter­ac­tively with the video projec­tion and the sand and continue for a further 10 minutes until the end of the piece. A video instal­la­tion on a monitor at the edge of the stage, runs during the entire perfor­mance of 18 minutes, displaying close up images of hands, feet and ears of one of the dancers.
