It’s like role playing.

My role…


all the thoughts that provoke your fear…


is rational thinking.

I am nature…

All the things that you call nature.

Okay, Mr. Nature.

What do you want?

score from ‘The way things go’ video-art by Fischli and Weiss

The piece was commissioned by Erkki Hirvela Atelier in Finland 2013 and takes inspiration from Fischli and Weiss art video ‘Der Lauf der Dinge’ 1987.

Two bodies reacting to one another’s impulses creating a chain of action-reaction. The movements happen only when triggered and efforts are initiated and embodied consequently.

a work in progress by Clare Daly

music ‘Saturday Night’ by Whigfield

A series of attempts, exchanges and relations between bodies; human and non-human, physical and conceptual, to consider the vibrancy and agency of objects and question established hierarchies between all ‘bodies’.

Clare Daly – is a dance artist who’s practice is concerned with performance – art – dance, their relationships to each other and challenging their conventional perception, by questioning modes of presentation and assumptions of virtuosity. She is interested in liveness, the condition of the body in performance, spectatorship and the possibilities that can arise from this encounter. Clare holds a BA (Hons) in Dance Theatre from Laban, London. Her work takes form on stage, as installation and sometimes site specific, and has been presented at various platforms and festivals around Europe. As a performer, she has worked with influential artists, including Lea Anderson, Matteo Fargion and Tino Sehgal.
