SIGNIFICANT ENCOUNTERS is a project in three parts:
a live performance, a video installation and an underwater sound piece.
SIGNIFICANT ENCOUNTERS looks at how meanings can be constructed based on the coming-together of things. In this instance these things include people, gymnasium mats, bodies of water, whales, video cameras and different spaces within a swimming pool. The work deals with how these things can be situated, put into dialogue with one another and disrupted through mutual encounter. The encounters are presented as a series of situations where each pose a kind of obstacle to the other – either ethical, physical or material.
The swimming pool is a curious space to explore these encounters as it can represent so many things – transformation, transition, freedom, vulnerability and exchange. They are spaces which somehow simulate and empathise with nature, yet demonstrate the potential of human-construction. The swimming pool is a highly complex theatrical and symbolic space.
