SPHERA is a visually impactful outdoor duet for non-conventional spaces that explores the relationship between the visible, bright side of the Moon and humankind; the luminous moonlight that we see from planet Earth and illuminates our nights. SPHERA is a dance of liquid bodies that change and morph under the influence of the Earth’s spherical satellite: the Moon.
SPHERA is danced on a circle of white astro turf 7m in diameter with a 360 surround sound design. This production has evolved from [and complements] the darker ORBIS (2017), performed with black capes on black astro turf.
SPHERA was created during the 2020 lockdown and premiered at Greenwich&Docklands International Festival in August 2020, this piece has been presented at Dansa Metropolitana (Barcelona), Sismograf (Catalonia), Bell Square (UK), among others.
SPHERA was commissioned by Sismograf and funded by Arts Council England.
