a study for enters and exits is an iteration of a larger work, Enters and Exits, currently in progress. Transposing the gestures and social behaviours from liminal spaces (waiting rooms, corridors, platforms, and lobbies) the work is physically situated in doorways between the front and back stage of the theatre. The gestures are reorganized by the specific architectural imposition of the theatre, subverting the narrative of their origin.

“Chambers explores unspectacular movement vocabularies, privileging the every day over the virtuosic dancing body audiences are accustomed to viewing.” (Rehearsal Research – Notes on a Residency by Sarah Todd)
