Abstract

Operating on the threshold of visibility Disappearing Acts offers subtle readings of the body, movement that disappears into the shadows or slips through unseen gaps in the curtains leaving lingering traces on the retina. Evocative images, stories and wry humour give voice to our experiences of disappearance, night-time and politically ‘dark times’. The work references the notion of the ephemeral nature of performance as explored by Phelan (1993), Lepecki (2004), also exploring ideas around loss, identity visibility and invisibility, appearance and disappearance within a political context.
