The clapping piece, 2017

A funny and light dance theatre duet that challenges the roles performers/observers in an unusual way.

The piece invites the audience to be aware of the impact of their presence in the theatrical context. Questioning who is being watched and who’s giving inspiration? Can the performance exist without the audience and vice versa?

Concept and performance: Marie Chabert and Kuan-Yu Chen

Photography: Justin Philpott

Filming: Khaya Maseko

Performed at Chisenhale Dance Space, Blue Elephant Theatre and New Shoreditch Theatre, London 2017
