‘There are two people in this dance performance, but it is not just about them. It is about all of us. It is about the secret lives we all possess when we are close to others. It is about those moments – between coffee and dancing – when harmony abandons us and all we have left is the desire to scream. It is a performance and place to imagine how things might be other than the way they are. It is a simple room for all our tomorrows.’
Spot the Difference was the preliminary version the newest work ‘A Room for All our Tomorrows’ by London-based duo Igor and Moreno in collaboration with Aoife McAtamney. The work deals with themes of similarity, difference, belonging and uniqueness. In Spot the Difference Moreno and Aoife, with Igor creating with them from the outside, perform alongside each other; and although they are completely different, they will look confusingly similar to reflect upon what unifies them and what differentiates them, where difference and similarity lie and how they can be revealed.
We worked with Stacie as part of the research phase of two upcoming productions, namely ‘Spot The Difference’(ARFAOT) and ‘SMOKE’. Stacie filmed rehearsals and public sharings of both from which she then edited teasers and short documentaries.
The two projects were distinct in nature and concept and Stacie was able to approach them in two different ways, managing to appropriate each concept and develop it coherently in the medium of film, choosing specific kinds of shots and editing for each.
She proved to be very eager, creative and communicative and she was not afraid of taking bold choices in order to achieve a clear direction for the work. The final work was high-quality and non-conventional.
It was a very stimulating collaboration, we look forward to be working again together and would definitely recommend Stacie to our colleagues.
