You Shall Only Go Up and Not Down
Keswick Unconventional with
August 2021. Live Performance, 50 minutes
St John's Church, Keswick, Lake District
This work-in-progress performance is a development of Sarah's previous performance lecture, "Touch Me Not: The Stand-In, the Decoy and the Redeemer". The work is a semi-improvised performance, utilising a script written by Sarah, which is spoken whilst Sarah and Tyrone move. In this iteration of the work the dancers used radio mics to allow simultaneous movement and speech. The work also incorporated a sofa acting as a prop; and the piece was performed in the aisle, on the stage, and in the balcony of the church. The entire script was simultaneously projected onto the back of the stage area, as rolling text appearing in time with the performance.
