Under Harry's Circumstances

​in collaboration with Kate Sherman

Under Harry’s Circumstances was a 30 minute dance work that was performed in all three of the venues of the Temporal Formal at Seidler City exhibition locations. This work brought dance and architecture together based on the Bauhaus idea of creating a total work of art in which all arts, including architecture, would eventually be brought together. Performing the same choreography that incorporated set movement phrases and improvisational scores in each landscape, we were curious as to how the work would be informed and transformed by each different environment examining how time, space and place informs meaning. Under Harry’s Circumstances investigated our relationship with our surroundings, examined how our environments inform us and how meaning is changed by circumstance and context.
