Transmission is an experimental dance performance/ performance lecture that questions dance’s inherent ephemerality. Transmission builds from an ongoing appreciation for dance pioneer, Trisha Brown and her seminal work Locus (1975), a desire to experiment with representation, place and gesture by building a shared embodied language in the ephemeral performance context of live performance. As Marcia Siegal suggests, ‘dancing exists at a perpetual vanishing point. At the moment of its creation it is gone’. Part of this performance lecture will incorporate radio transmission as a source of poetics and embodied dance practice, transmitting dance across time and space and social memory. By uniting the ephemeral forms of radio and dance, an agency is given to the dance that embraces the complexity of the mess, moving past the image and into the ether.
