Rose Butler, Misstep (work in progress). Choreographer: Alexander Whitley; dancer: Natalie Allen
I have been invited into dialogue with artist Rose Butler in relation to her new work Misstep, with the view to developing new writing / collaborative artists’ publication. With reference to Edison's early film of the butterfly dance, Misstep considers shifts in non-linear temporality combined with a change in traditional point of view from one that we would associate with being grounded to one that is in flight and from above. The work comprises dance phrases choreographed by Alexander Whitley with dancer Natalie Allen, filmed in slow motion for forthcoming installation at The Lowry January 2016 and then be shown on FACT's interactive TILO screen in Liverpool.
