‘S/HE’ is live, at home, online. They’re making a show. She’s in Scotland. He’s in Sweden.
The effort. To connect. To be intimate again. Sometimes funny. Sometimes to be somebody else. Inspired by renaissance nudes, Patti Smith and zoom.A digital encounter in the flesh. An invitation to dance.
‘S/HE’ is an online performance by dance artists Skye Reynolds and Khamlane Halsackda.
A journey between 2 friends attempting to make a show on zoom, during a pandemic.
Their meetings create a live collage that reaches into the realms of visual art, drawing inspiration from historic & contemporary heroines.
Curious about their bodies & mindful of ‘the gaze’ they explore how technological and gendered perspectives impact the way we see or want to be seen. What does corporeal intimacy mean when we’ve been so physically distanced? Can they find sanctuary, empowerment and the human connection we crave, even in the digital?
