'The work takes as inspiration the lyrics from Lauri Anderson’s song “You walk...and you don't always notice it, but you're constantly falling. With every step...you fall…” to explore hidden blocks that continue to hamper the road towards inclusivity and diversity; diverse bodies are becoming visible to society’s eyes yet invisible to its infrastructure.
The project addresses Demy’s commitment to questioning hidden normative structures in contemporary choreography. She is interested in pursuing action that dismantles attitudes that invisibly work against inclusive and diverse dance practice. ‘You walk…” turns to the access and inhabitation of space of the dancer with diverse abilities. The project asks: how do we actively construct a space for diverse bodies to be made present and visible, with agency and participation in the creation of our contemporary society? Given this, the project moves away from the proscenium to develop an immersive performance where the audience will navigate an interactive space with the dancers constructing and deconstructing possibilities towards change.'
