‘Hands’ is a short dance film that can also be performed live with real-time projection. The work explores dialogue and form through hand gestures that reach, curve, invite and retreat. Hands is a soliloquy about loneliness and longing, drawn out through a dialogue between the artist’s right and left hands.
The work developed from my R&D project ‘Fold’ carried out through a residency at Yorkshire Dance in 2017. Footage of the research process can be found here.
