Occasions

Occasions

Occasions is a collectively constructed, celebratory dance experience. Using a shared vocabulary, moments of synchronicity emerge as the dancers make themselves available to connection. A dreamscape of swelling energies and drifting winds is formed by their snaking pathways through the seemingly limitless space. Amidst the repetition and continuity of dancers coming and going, Occasions highlights the subtle ingredients that combine to form a heightened, ecstatic moment through a communal sense of presence and attention.

An Evening-length Performance

An Evening-length Performance

With An Evening-­length Performance, Australian choreographer James Batchelor reimagines the baroque ballroom as a place for queer encounters and expression. A new kind of social dance emerges that invites curiosity about the event space and its inherent theatricality.

As doors open and layers are removed, the formality of the space shifts to allow moments of subtlety and intimacy.

Hyperspace

Hyperspace

Hyperspace is a solo performed by James Batchelor in intimate theatres and unique found spaces. From the human body to the cosmos, Hyperspace is an inquiry into the metrics we use to measure the deep unknowns of the universe. It proposes a study of the human body seen through the prism of cosmology, a mapping of the universe within and around it. It premiered in Bassano del Grappa in 2018 and was presented in Dance Massive in Melbourne 2019 before extensive touring in Europe. It was chosen as an Aerowaves work in 2019, a prestigious European mobility platform for independent artists.
