alexandra bachzetsis - chasing a ghost

Chasing a Ghost comprises a series of ten duets performed by four dancers and two pianists. Bachzetsis expands the choreographic archetype of the duet to include references to the doppelganger, the mirror image and the uncanny. Images, movements and sounds are produced and doubled almost immediately. A sound that seems recognisable is quickly transformed into something different. A space that seems familiar is shown from a different angle. A movement that just occurred reappears in a different shape. Combining live music and performance with video and recorded sound, Chasing a Ghost investigates fluidity and permanence via the body, identity, the moving image and performance, challenging definitions of physical, emotional and psychological relationships.
