A hybrid artwork by Rosanna Irvine, conceived as an expanded choreographic project operating across art forms including performance, sound, video, drawing and graphic notation for breath. Breath Pieces works with the materiality of breath and the breathing body.
Part performance, part installation – Breath Pieces comprises of multiple components intermingling in an immersive experience of the breathing breath.
In each piece the actuality of the breathing breath is the driving force for the visceral emerging of kinetic, sonic and visual imagery. Including performance, sound, video, drawing and spoken text. Each breath piece is distinct – though at times overlapping or interacting with other pieces.
Audience is mobile. Breath is everywhere.
