‘Nous’ began in early 2011 with some of my captured and edited improvisation based on different states of ‘being’. I wanted to play with the movement as a duo so Cass and I began adapting it and developing it on our bodies. Amarcord Wien’s adaptation of Satie’s ‘Gnossienne 1′ gave the movement an interesting flavour. We filmed the material at our studio and here Cass has edited a small dance film clip offering ‘un gout’ of what might be to come. We will be developing this work further in the second half of 2011.

The beach setting was perfect– a huge crowd gathered to enjoy the performance as a part of the official opening of Sculpture by the Sea.
With the performance starting just as the sun was setting and continuing through the twilight the atmosphere created was ideal for the work – an inspired vision of Louise Howden-Smith.
The crowd clearly appreciated the performance and the whole experience of this unique setting of the work amidst the sculptures and in front of the magnificent Indian Ocean. It was a beautiful and successful juxtaposition of these two art forms.
