Physical Theatre piece devised for Fieldwork
Anything with Mass was the the result of a six month research project about art, science and the process of making. Fieldwork placed artists and scientists side by side, creating unusual pairings and unlikely encounters in the field of arts and science. Robyn was partnered with CERN Particle Physicist, Alexander Lenz, and over the six months we came together in an enquiry about process and practice. Through conversations and my own research I explored his world of quantum mechanics. At the same time we investigated new perspectives and critical discourse into each other’s disciplines.
I shared my creative response to this research with strangers on the tables of Edinburgh's Forest Cafe. With the resulting accumulated material, I spent three days in a rehearsal space with performers, devising and exploring, using chorus, butoh, contact improvisation, text and clown. Anything with Mass was shown in March at ARC in Stockton as part of the project's scratch night.
I was excited and delighted with the result and the response from audiences.
“Very clever and surprising! Very witty”
