Sydney Biennale
In Memory of the Last Sunset

In direct engagement with Neha Choksi’s installation – a wall layered with multiple images of sunsets – dancer Alice Cummins’ cyclical performance asks urgent questions about the life of an ever-warming planet and the life of an ageing body.

Residency

In June Alice will be in NYC to work with colleagues and then on to Montreal where she is presenting at the annual BMCA conference, Metamorphosis: Evolutionary Pathways in Somatics.

Alice then has a residency at Concordia University, made possible through Erin Manning and the SenseLab. Based in Montreal, the SenseLab is an international network of artists and academics, writers and makers, from a wide diversity of fields, working together at the crossroads of philosophy, art, and activism.

Dance/film Collaboration
After 15 years Alice is once more collaborating with visual artist Michele Theunissen. This new work involves several dancers, film and installation. As part of this project Alice will continue her collaboration with dance artist Jacqui Otago.

Based on the idea of disappearance. Of what? Of the world as we know it, of the natural world, of handwriting, of languages, of cultures, of youth, of forms of slow communication, of friendships, of loved ones.
