International Resident Artists 2016

InDialogue is pleased to announce the resident artists for InDialogue 2016 

Chloé Déchery and Jane McKernan


On the Horizon

On The Horizon is a performance project between Chloé Déchery and Jane McKernan, who will be in residence at Dance4 in November, ahead of the InDialogue 2016 symposium and performance evening. The residency is a collaboration between InDialogue and Dance4 and is funded by Arts Council England.

On The Horizon is a performance project between theatre maker Chloé Déchery and choreographer Jane McKernan, which takes the horizon as a starting point – as a conceptual framework and tangible space – to consider our relation to the landscape and distance within a public space. On The Horizon offers an immersive and intimate experience for a small group of spectators. The piece invites the spectators to gather in an outdoor site, sit in front of a particular vista and listen to a podcast commenting upon the landscape set in front of them. Combining a semi-documentary narrative, a dreamy soundscape with choreographic interventions set within the space, the piece enables the spectators to understand how the spectating act can inform and shift our relationship to your natural environment. What do we see when we look around? What can’t we see? How can we train our eyes to “see better”?

Chloé Déchery and Jane McKernan are running workshops with the local community as part of this project at Sneinton Primary School.

You are invited to join Chloé Déchery and Jane McKernan for a walk and talk on Monday 28 November 2016

Chloé Déchery is a French theatre-maker working in London and Paris and everywhere in-between. Chloé makes performance works for theatre and public spaces, using a combination of storytelling, anthropological observations, task-based choreography, video footage and found objects. She likes to blur frontiers between fact and fiction, between the everyday and the autobiographical, while playfully deconstructing the mechanics of representation; interrogating what we see and what remains hidden from us.

Jane McKernan is an award-winning Australian performer, choreographer and co-founder of the collaborative trio The Foundue Set (Green room Award 2009; Keir Choreographic Audience Choice Award, 2015). Her dance practice is interested in modes to guide an audience’s attention and perception.
