HUGO DALTON VOLITION: MOVEMENT AND MARK
Volition is a new work conceived specifically for Art 13 London as well as being part of an on going project by Dalton to present classical dance and movement to a wider audience. At its core, Volition is the simple act of the artist drawing with pencil on paper as a dancing figure moves in front of them, with the resulting marks projected instantaneously onto a large screen.
The symbolic nature of Volition evolves through a series of ‘studies’ – stretch, improvisation, structure and partner – which explore the way in which we manipulate our surroundings or the way in which our surrounding shape us.
David Downey (Royal Ballet) will be performing the work.
