Meaning ‘spacing’, espacement is a solo work for film created by Helen Kindred with lighting and cinematic design by Mikkel Svak. A solo improvisation, the work is a study of the internalized journey of the breath through the spine. Through three short improvisations movement focuses on the breath through Bartenieff Fundamentals head-tail patterns of connectivity. ‘Breath is an inner shaping experience. It provides the baseline of flow for either an opening or a closing, and Breath is support for those changes’ (Hackney, 2002: 41). The creation of the work in HD film allows a detailed focus on the core of the body, the movement of the spine and the texture and responsiveness of the skin. The permutation of the breath beyond the skin and the relationship of environment is reflected in the light and shadows moving across the spine.
