SPEC is a balletic exploration of movement and sound created through research surrounding the scientific study of perspective, spectatorship, and the spectacle of performance.
The work was first presented as an interactive installation in which the performance space was split into two. On one side: an unencumbered view of the ongoing dance performance. On the opposite side: an obscured and hindered view of the performance. Telephones connected both sides, providing any who obliged the opportunity to discuss what was sensed and seen in as much detail as possible.
Adapted for the stage for a theatrical viewing experience, SPEC continues to challenges viewers' perspectives.
