  Like sand tumbling down a dune; like a glacier breaking off; like a virus proliferating through a body; like a choreography falling apart.                                                                                                        - Paul Hughes, for DRAFF
       
     
 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.

  The Bridge  was the created as the culmination of research and development during a yearlong  BBC Performing Arts Fund  fellowship hosted by  Independent Dance  and is part of my algorithmic performance series.   45 performers danced in 10 structures/ systems which proposed different relationships between the audience and the dancers. As the audience moved across the bridge, their movement activated dances according to rules which could be learned through further physical investigation.
