Gail Priest & Jane McKernan's
One thing follows another…One thing follows another....


Anything can follow anything else providing nothing is taken as the basis.


One thing follows another… is a negotiation between the art forms of dance and music. Jane, Angela and Lizzie do not always dance to Gail’s music and Gail does not always make music to dance to. This balancing act of independence and collaboration is played out with more than a nod to the Fluxus movement and 1960s avant-garde.

It is about being in the moment, then in the next moment and then the moment that follows. Perhaps it’s best described as a gathering of people who share 56 minutes of their lives together, the making of music and dance filling time and empty it, in order to feel its passing.

Creative development: One thing follows another…


An in-depth collaborative exploration into the simultaneous composition of music (Gail Priest) and dance (Jane MacKernan). By working in real-time, at the same time, the compositional process will navigate music and dance in dialogue, in argument; in infatuation and ambivalence.

This project has been assisted by the Australia Council through it's Music/Dance initiative and by Performance Studies, The University of Sydney.

Showing: Dec 7, 2012
