Sheena McGrandles: Figured

Figured by Sheena McGrandles as part of Moving in November festivals Traces from November program.

Two figures re-edit themselves across a wall, back and forth, cut, reverse, re-wind, a constant disruption performed on their bodies. 

In Sheena McGrandles’ Figured the main stage element, a wall functions as a screen, a display, a backdrop, an object and a choreographic device. 

Figured is based on a reduced trajectory of ten seconds that is hyper edited and hacked live over a time frame of forty minutes. It is a study into the mediated body that focuses on a complex composition and execution of the physical exposing the absurdity and artificiality of the everyday gesture.

Figured gets stuck in the detail and insists in the seeing of it again and again.
