Two-part choreography powerhouse Phantom Limbs is made up of alumnus James Welsby and fellow dancer/choreographer Amy Macpherson. The pair are set to present their new work Dreamlogic at Speakeasy in March.
The work dives into concepts of perception, in an attempt to engage with the ‘shadow self’ or the unconscious aspects of our psychology. Performed by Welsby and dancer James Andrews, Dreamlogic sees two bodies dive through a cacophony of polyrhythms, creating meaning through complete dedication to the channelling of mental physical energy. Inspired by scientific research on the boundaries between human bodies, the performance seeks to reveal if our subconsciousness can exist outside the confines of ‘the body’.
