RETRACING- WE MOVE FORWARD THROUGH TIME
March 16th 7pm
222 East Georgia, Vancouver BC
A durational performance that explores the continuity and temporality of human experience. The figure acts in metronomic iteration through space inviting meditative contemplation and consideration of our particular moment in history.
Presented as part of a series of events co-ordinated by Guadalupe Martinez as part of her Artist Residency at The Foreshore.
JULIANNE CHAPPLE’s work explores surreal imagery, objecthood and memory utilizing the body as medium. Drawing on a history of performed movement including circus acrobatics and yoga as well as classical and contemporary dance forms, the edges of the body’s mobility are explored and exploited often to the effect of depersonalizing and fragmenting the human form.
Chapple’s movement practice translates into performance combining choreography with text, sculpture, sound and lighting. The process is often a collaborative one, working closely with the performers or visual/sound artists to create the finished piece. Julie has made performance for traditional theatre environments as well as art galleries, outdoor sites and unconventional locations.
Her performance and video work has been presented extensively in Canada as well as Ireland, Italy and Germany. Most recently, she created a new work in residence at Edam Dance and was artist in residence at the Dance Centre in Vancouver for the 15/16 season. Julianne is also co-producer and sometimes curator of a small experimental performance series titled Shooting Gallery Performance, and sits on the board of directors for CADA-West.
