The compulsive choreography of Antony Hamilton combines with Alisdair Macindoe’s obsessive machine-making practice in Meeting, being performed as part of PIAF.
In a circle of 64 wirelessly controlled robotic percussion instruments – each tapping a pencil to create a mesmerising sound – are two dancers. Moving in perfect synchronicity, they’re slaves to the fascinating rhythm of taps, clinks, clanks, rattles and whirs.
This dynamic and choreographic sound installation reveals a fascination with the body and mind in motion.
Antony joined Artbeat to discuss the inspiration for the show and more.
