Created by James Batchelor & Collaborators
Presented by Arnolfini; created by James Batchelor and Collaborators. A renowned contemporary dance work comes to Bristol on its international tour -“Rocking, lulling, rolling and mapping, Deepspace maps the terrain between rational deduction and intuitive feeling.” – Arts Review Australia
Combining dance, sound, and installation, Deepspace is a mesmerising, intimate performance that examines our curiosity for the unknown. Playing at the intersection of art and science, the body is taken to the extremities of remoteness and proximity, connectedness and isolation, certainty and uncertainty.
In 2016 James Batchelor was invited to be official “voyage artist” on a 2-month expedition at sea studying remote islands in the sub-Antarctic. This expedition led by the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in Australia took place on Australia’s Marine National Facility, the RV Investigator, a state of the art research vessel. It journeyed to the UNESCO World Heritage Heard and McDonald Islands, with the purpose of studying submarine volcanoes and their relationship to the Earth’s biosphere.
