Jane Mason – Night Flying
Friday 13th March 2020
Drawing on ideas related to deep time, the night sky and landscapes of being, Night Flying is a duet with long-time collaborator David Williams. Together they explore a constellation of associations related to memory, change and wonder.
Night Flying combines movement, music, text, and objects to create images that unfold fluidly like dreams. A map of the night sky. Footprints in the sand. Breath, wind, flight. An encounter with an ‘angel’. A journey into space carrying messages about our world for other alien civilisations. Ultimately, it offers ‘a choreography for the small hours … for the 4:07 a.m. in you when the streets and cities and landscapes are stilling, when the world has evacuated the day, when you are yet to meet the sunrise’ (Ian Abbott, Writing about Dance).
