Mnemosyne: re-membering, 3 dance-architecture events


Hannah, D, Mnemosyne: re-membering, 3 dance-architecture events, Prague Quadrennial, Veletztrni Palace, Prague, 1 (2011) [Performance]


This exhibition/event/performance was shown at the 2011 Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, in New Zealandís national pavilion, and uses as a starting point fragments of 3 productions selected for exhibition (Her Topia, Aerero Stone, and Tongues of Stone, 2005-2011). Utilizing live action rather than static display, the reflexive performance installation drew upon the mythical figure of Mnemosyne and her pool of remembrance as its keystone. I treated NZís pavilion (Fly Tower) as an archival repository by suspending or embedding objects and costumes from past performances,. The situated performance and spatial design responded to the environment of the Czech National Art Gallery as a site-specific design landscape in which a live performer catalogues, maps and reconstructs phrases and artefacts: thereby constructing a new work about remembrance and longing.
