By Night is an exploration through an Improvised structure. The goal is to choreograph in the present moment organising space, time and dynamics. My interest in dance is to view the body as an object where the intention is to constantly organise, create and adapt around ones knowledge of self and space. Showing vulnerability while performing creates an interesting environment for me to work in. The precariousness of this becomes part of the relationship I have with the viewer.
This video shows two different performances at the same time.

"I was very happy to see tap and Irish dance get a guernsey, and to also to see the talented Benjamin Hancock on stage. He performed a solo piece on a circular piece of carpet which he didn’t stray from. Hancock was mesmerising."
