A broad body of work that treats smoke as a material in an analogous way to how a sculpture might treat clay, Life support is a live performance that is concerned with our mortality and what persists and disappears.
This gentle and confronting performance contrasts the presence of a dancing body with the subtly frightening and wonder filled potential of the motion of gases.
As the shared environment becomes enveloped by smoke, the audience becomes ever more aware of the very air they are breathing, evoking a space for reflection about how people care for themselves, each other and the planet.
Life support is the sequel to And Then Something Fell On My Head and one in a series of works Ashley Dyer refers to as Dance Portraits that depict modern constructed archetypes in relationship to the beauty of everyday phenomena.When
