Blurred Vision 2012
Blurred Vision is the second collaborative dance project between Liz Aggiss and Charlotte Vincent (Artistic Director Vincent Dance Theatre). This on-going collaboration from The Vision Series, a trilogy of research projects, is driven by a feminist perspective and designed to investigate a minimalist manifesto applied to dance.
“We have made something to show you, but we are not sure how much it is worth… so we are going to give you your money back”
Thus begins Blurred Vision made in just four days in residence at Yorkshire Dance Leeds in March 2012 during Juncture curated by Charlotte Vincent. Set to a repeated soundtrack of the Dance of the Knights by Sergei Prokofiev, Blurred Vision is an exploration of nothing. No thing. Nothing at all. Nada. Rien. Niente. Nicht. A cocky, clever couple, concerned with comprehensible context, conceptual clarity and the simple execution of complex content, Blurred Vision finds Vincent and Aggiss exploring the void, searching for something – anything – that can shed light on the questions ‘What on earth are we doing here?’, ‘Why are we doing this?’, ‘Would you pay good money to see this?’ and, perhaps most importantly, ‘when will it all end?”
