Exercises with Fire II (2021)
A dancer's body moves between round, fluid gestures and fervent convulsions atop a low, undulating score. Part of an ongoing collaboration with artist Mie Beers, this work draws upon the formal techniques of dance and video editing in an attempt to respond to the question: how can a person move their body through its grief?

You sound lost
Where are you going?
Is it in your papers?
What are you carrying?
— Akram Khan, “Bahok”

Here, for now presents five evocations of movement and home. From roots to routes, these works navigate an embodied, mobile geography through memory, migration, environment, dance and survival.
