STACK is a playful and interactive dance-puzzle in the  People Make Patterns  series of works (with  The Performing Book  and  3x3 ). Following ongoing interest in play, learning and coding, STACK proposes an environment in which five dancers and an audience meet in a real-time interactive situation. STACK behaves like an open-ended game where dancers amass and scatter in various configurations following a logic to be discovered by the audience through their own positions in space. Audience can work together to compose or erode an image, to bring dancers together or keep them apart. The invitation to the audience is to play, together.    The development of STACK has been supported by Arts Council England, South East Dance, Roehampton Dance & Sadler’s Wells.

 In Winter 2014/15 I developed prototypes of different dance-game structures and relational scores through the REFINE residency programme at Chisenhale Dance Space and with support from South East Dance and Arts Council England. In early 2018 I had the opportunity to revisit some of this work with BA students from Roehampton University for a performance at NEON late, a museum-at-night event at Horniman Museum. For this the students and I created "stack", a proto STACK, which we tested through a fun and rather wild performance on March 1st!  Roehampton stack with:  Anett Toth, Azize Sousami, Emily Wilkinson, Elettra Giunta, Gabriele Sinkunaite, Ioanna Georgopoulou, Juliette Mello and Telisa Cottier.
