On expedition to Antarctica with the body as a measuring instrument.
In 2016 James Batchelor was among 60 scientists, artists and crew that spent two months on an expedition to research Sub-Antarctic volcanoes.. The dance maker charted the journey with his own body as a measuring instrument. With Deepspace he conveys his experience together with Chloe Chignell and musician Morgan Hickinbotham.
In a combination of dance, sound, and installation, Deepspace is an enchanting and intimate performance that explores our curiosity about the unknown. Playing at the intersection of art and science, the body is taken to the extremes of seclusion and nearness, connection and isolation, security and insecurity.
During the performance, you can walk around the performers and decide where to stand to see them. This journey shifts your attention constantly from the large to the very small to finally take you to the deep unknown of the universe.
After the performance was shown in special locations such as at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Batchelor now comes to the Lutherian Church.

The prizewinning Australian dance maker James Batchelor was invited in 2016 by the Australian Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies to join an expedition to explore Sub-Antarctic volcanoes. He spent two months on the research vessel RV Investigator. This entailed two months of living according to a fixed daily rhythm. Two months of constant swell on one of the roughest oceans on the planet. The dance maker charted the journey with his own body as a measuring instrument. The experience changed his perception of time and space. With Deepspace, he conveys these experiences together with Chloe Chignell and musician Morgan Hickinbotham .
