Small Details

Sandra Parker

Small Details

Presented by Dancehouse with support from the City of Yarra

Small Details extends the focus in Sandra Parker’s practice on minimal movement and gestural action.

The work uses a series of automated kinetic sculptures set against intricately refined choreography. Selected gestures are performed in extreme detail and in repetitious cycles: the work’s duration testing the performers’ and audience’s capacity to meet the demands of the choreographic system.

At its apex, where precision and fixity break, the work attunes attention beyond the choreographic logic, to focus on the vulnerabilities, limitations and potentials of the body in an automated and technologically advanced world.
