Dance performance in collaboration with visual artists Ash Keating and Bridie Lunney, and sound composer Clark.

Merge unearths the sensorial nature of the relationship between body and object, questioning the modern-day understanding of material necessity. It acknowledges the beauty, absurdity and humour inherently present in this realm, and looks at the visual and aesthetic manifestation that is constructed and de-constructed in space.

Featuring sound design from renowned UK electronic musician Clark (Warp)and props designed by visual artists Ash Keating and Bridie Lunney, Merge is a collision of bodies, sound and material, revealing the madness of humans’ incessant compulsion to accelerate and adapt with their environment beyond what natural limits impose.
