Bachmann presents 'a circle whispering dot' (2019) which examines the relationship between voice, gesture and social norms. Gesture, voice and language contribute to an embodied vocabulary through which the three performers navigate fragmentary exchanges, reflecting on the edges of subjectivity, inner landscapes and representation, using sound and movement as a catalyst for transforming expression.
Performance Exchange is a dispersed performance platform held across London once a year. Further information can be found here.
