I performed and was involved in the development of The Parts of the Belly from June 2016-August 2018.
Zoë Knights’ interest lies in the abstract potential of emotions. From a single sensation, she composes vocal and movement material in an attempt to separate both the vocal timbre from its source and the levels of communication ‘information’ and ‘emotion’ from one another. “The Parts of the Belly” (working title) takes a scene from a film as the reference point and uses the translation of an emotion into dance to make its corporeal, rhythmic and visceral aspects perceptible. In place of a narrative, a resonating body emerges in the stage space.
