In a series of short solo works, Marguerite Galizia crafts space, words, projection and movement into a fluid and thought-provoking dialogue.


Dancer/ choreographer Marguerite Galizia presents a collection of short solo studies using live projection in performance. ‘Frames’ are a series of works that reflect her long-standing obsession with space, playing between the real, virtual and perceived spaces to frame, fragment and disorientate the body.

‘Words for dancing’ is a processual work coming out of her current interest in solo dancing and asks what it means to choreograph oneself.


Technical and artistic support from Simon Katan.
