We can see and feel the waste of material things. Awkward, inefficient, or ill-directed movements of men, however, leave nothing visible or tangible behind them. Their appreciation calls for an act of memory, an effort of the imagination. (FW Taylor, Principles of Scientific Management)

 

Frames presents Rambert’s dancers at work. Confronted with a mass of materials stripped away from the mechanisms of the theatre, they come together and are put to task in their own construction site. Through a system of metal structures and portable lights objects emerge and images come to life, transforming and morphing as bodies and elements interact. Drawing us into a world of things, Frames provokes us to consider their permanence in contrast to the transiency of movement and how what is seen and experienced may be more than meets the eye. What does dance itself produce if no visible artefact is left over from the dancers' efforts and how, under the frame of the proscenium arch, do tangible and imaginary worlds collide?
