The Salon Series provided an opportunity to present the work 'Jemima'. 'Jemima' plays with multiple physicalities, performance states and expression as they jostle up against each other al at once. The jostling in the moment of performance creates a viscosity in the musculature, a tension, that also creates an intensity in performance. The discussion post performances provided an opportunity to articulate discoveries made in the studio prior to performance and also insights from performance. The questions asked by audiences have further stimulated studio practice as research.
