Tremor brings together creator Ashley Dyer and diverse collaborators in an intense sonic/ kinetic encounter. Sound creates movement, movement creates sound: when the resonant frequency of a thing, system, or even a person is reached, it sings in sympathy. When the amplitude is too great, it breaks.
Tremor is kinetic sculpture, musical instrument and dance performance combined: touch, vibration, perception and motion are at the core of the work. It’s a seismic movement, a physical manifestation of trauma, an attempt to heal. It’s an overflow of pressure – on the body and on the planet.
Ashley Dyer (Life Support, 2013; Nothing to See Here, 2014) has gained a reputation for challenging, confronting and poetically intriguing works that merge the unexpected with unexpected beauty. Tremor promises a unique and idiosyncratic venture into the natural, the constructed, the individual and the environment, heard and felt through the whole body.
