'I dance through an assemblage of scores occupying the questions i have about life- including death, humanity… love, and the polarities of survival.'

Alternatives to Survival is a new body of work, which will be developed through a series of  residencies:
Tuesday 02 – Friday 05 January | Chapter, Cardiff
Saturday 06 January | Oriel Myrddin, Carmarthen
Friday 12 January | Twmpath Abercych, Pembrokshire

Dancing in the Gallery is a partnership between the galleries Oriel Davies, Oriel Myrddin and movement artist Simon Whitehead. Established to provide a context for dance artists and galleries in Wales to investigate the possibilities of the live medium of dance made for the gallery. This initiative will nurture a creative dialogue between dance artists and galleries, and a commitment to the occurrence of dance in these public spaces.

About Anushiye Yarnell

Anushiye is a maker and performer whose work is drawn from personal experience, past and future mythologies. Her works examine the intersection of dream and fantasy realms with ordinary life and cultural diversity, experientially unravelling the function of Love within our lives.

“Through this terrain, each performance navigates its way towards a transformative destination. I dance through an assemblage of scores occupying the questions I have about life- including death, humanity including the animal and divine, love including the polarities of survival. Though personal experience is the source for these performances, they seek out the universal, the mutual, and the possibility for an imaginative experience, unique to each person within the audience. I strive to recreate each piece individually for each specific space responding to the framing of each moment, how it colludes with my life at that time and the intimate relational space into which I invite the audience. “
