Bodies morph between human, animal, monster, machine and the unknown in Tim Darbyshire’s synaesthetic exploration of cyclical and audible movement, More or Less Concrete. Suspended between recognisable ‘concrete’ realities and ambiguous or surrealistic states, Darbyshire’s unique choreography warps and oscillates inside a tunnel-like space where receding and ephemeral qualities contrast the harshness of the physical.

More or Less Concrete draws on diverse inspirations from musique concrète, sound theory, cinema, abstraction, swimming and tap-dance. A collaborative and experimental project, More or Less Concrete exists in a realm of constant tension and continual movement, evoking evolutionary processes through its flexing, sculptural shifts in time and space.
