Presented by Susan Kempster

Using an old video camera and a projector, the piece revolves around the micro dance of facial expressions. It is a solo show, with invited guests participating in a sequence of “face dances”.

Eye takes its inspiration from the exploration of the small dance – in this case the micro dances that are occurring constantly not only in the body but in the face. A lifetime of observation of the subtle dialogue of facial expressions and the reading of people’s inner thoughts and feelings through it.

Eye is also a look at self through the lens of a camera, not a mirror. It is a close-up, a detail, an intimate diving into private worlds we sometimes wish no one could see. The piece sits somewhere between dance, performance, happening and theatre.
