Maps

Arts & Culture

MAPS - Work in Progress.

Three dancers and a live musician bring the world map to life in a continuous, culturally mixed, rhythmic groove.

When we look at a geological map, we see rock and water. The topographic map shows everything that man and nature has amassed on it. The political map defines the borders of our countries, states and cities.

All maps are a snapshot in time, a fixed interpretation of our world, unable to capture the ebb and flow of people, places and politics. MAPS is a dance piece considering the world map through its constantly changing nature, as a movable image and a portrait of how globalisation and freedom of information have opened our understanding of borders. 

In collaboration with academic researchers and visual artists, MAPS is Israeli choreographer Sivan Rubenstein’s arresting new work. 

Post-show talk with Dr Sarah Fine and Sivan Rubinstein.
