In 2022 two early-career choreographers, selected from 63 international applicants, had been exploring, questioning
and developing their dance practice in depth, mentored by Wayne McGregor.
As part of their bespoke programme, each artist has been given intensive time and space for choreographic and conceptual development through the making and sharing of a new work for and with the Biennale College dancers.
LIMINAL was created in collaboration with:
Ben Kreukniet - Visual Artist
JASSS - Composer, Musician
Dora Hegedus - Costume Designer
Dancers: Muriel Bermejo Tuñón, Giacomo De Luca, Lauryn Hayes, Esther López Navarro, Pauline Manfredi, Asja Marabotti, Anthony Milian, Fernando Pérez Hernández, Angelo Zizzi
"The word “liminal” comes from the Latin limen, which means “threshold”.
A liminal space is a doorway, a place of transition.
This is the sacred space where old and familiar structures can fall apart,
and there is a world ahead of us that we cannot yet see.
It is neither here nor there, it is often a period of discomfort, the middle time of transformation.
We are thrown between where we have come from and where we are going.
These thresholds of not knowing our “next” are inevitable and can be disruptive.
But it is also a place for potential. We are required to hang in here.
We are suspended here. But in this the time of waiting - we become."
