Empty Gestures

A performance for any kind of space.


First presented Attenborough Arts Centre (Leicester) May 2016.

Further performances at Exhi[5]bitions, Rich Mix (London) June 2016 and Salon Rose (Edinburgh) January 2019.

Two figures synchronously perform a series of unrepeating hand gestures to the quiet beat of a metronome. ​Empty Gestures 

presents an intimate fragility of clumsy hands, faulty memory and precarious unison.

Empty Gestures was an early but important work for us. We think of it as our 'party piece' –always ready to be attempted if the mood is right. After each performance, the string of gestures grows. We envisage ourselves performing it for a while.
