Alexandra Bachzetsis
A Piece Danced Alone

Thursday 1 December, 7.30pm (Doors Open 7pm)

Chisenhale Gallery presents A Piece Danced Alone, a performance devised and choreographed by Alexandra Bachzetsis. Staged in Chisenhale’s main space, A Piece Danced Alone will be performed for the first time in London and for one night only.

Two performers – Bachzetsis herself and dancer Anne Pajunen - take the stage dressed in identical apparel and for the duration of the performance continuously trade a series of dance routines and spoken monologues back and forth between them. This action is punctuated by live and pre-recorded video footage, as well as an original music score. Bachzetsis uses body language as a visual material, deploying repetition and gesture-play as tools in the construction of performed identities.

Alexandra Bachzetsis (b. 1974, Zurich) lives and works in Basel, Switzerland. Solo exhibitions include Play, Kunsthaus Glarus (2010); and SHOW, Kunsthalle Basel (2008). Recent group exhibitions include Performative Structures. New Existentialism, Part 1, Alte Fabrik, Rapperswil (2010); and The 5th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art (2008). Bachzetsis was nominated for the DESTE Prize (2011) and was recently announced as the winner of the Swiss Art Award (2011).

A Piece Danced Alone is presented in collaboration with Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, 2012

Tickets are £5 (£4 students) and are available in advance from wegottickets.com
