Olivia Shaffer: Senescence
Kelly McInnes: Blue Space
Senescence is a personal reflection into Olivia Shaffer's care-giving journey, through her father’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Using movement and text, in collaboration with sound designer Alex Mah, Senescence offers the audience a ceremonial performance, highlighting triumphs and heartaches in a collective embrace of our unavoidable impermanence.
senescence (/sɪˈnɛsəns/): biological aging; the gradual deterioration of functional characteristics that occurs in the mind and body.
Blue Space is a solo created and performed by Kelly McInnes. It is an exploration of our intrinsic connection to the world and our behaviour that harms it.
Blue Space is a reflection and an experiment. Blue Space is all shades of blue. It is a plea, a celebration and a mourning. Blue Space is hope, action, confusion, grief. It is remembering and healing. Blue Space is about water. It is about life. It is about oceans within oceans. Blue Space is wet, moist, dripping. Blue Space is you.
