carrier is an abstract dance-work engaging themes
of transmission, mutation and metamorphosis, evoking fears of contamination and
disease. The space is cut and divided and the audience' view altered and obscured by gauzes and screens; costumes change and transform.
The concept and design of the piece draw on notions of exterior beauty
belying interior dangers, with references and allusions to viruses, epidemics
and witch-hunts. The spoken texts derive from the Malleus Malificarum
, the 15th
century treatise on witches.
