This very physical solo from one of Australia’s most remarkable contemporary dance artists emerged from a unique opportunity to participate in a scientific expedition to the Antarctic. Aerowaves Twenty19 has recognised HYPERSPACE as one of the twenty best dance productions in Europe.
In a contemplative performance, James Batchelor visibly expresses the endeavour to create a conversation between scientific and artistic inquiry. HYPERSPACE offers a vision of the human body seen through the prism of cosmology, a mapping of the universe within and around it. The detailed choreography emphasises the delicacy and mortality of the body. James Batchelor has a strong desire to investigate and his work demands to be viewed and thought about. With minimalism on a massive to infinitesimal scale, HYPERSPACE proves that even a small movement can be virtuosic.
The Prague program of KoresponDance will be presented in Prague's Invalidovna and the entrance is free.
