UR Feeling Video
UR Feeling considers how people feel in response to the inherent architectural codes of the built environment and how the social history of a place can produce particular affects. Two performers respond to image-based exercises, visual 'clues', forming the basis of a choreography. These images are derived from ideas about the body in relationship to situation, apprehension of context, buildings or objects. Eschewing an explanatory or analytical mode of address, the work is wordless and does not set out to convey meaning through representation, but to illuminate experience through the senses. Placing emphasis on mood and embodiment, a soundscape includes field recordings from the Wapping Old Stairs on the River Thames and samples of a reconstructed Lyre excavated from the ancient site of the Mesopotamian city Ur.
