Be Your Self

Back to our works

Garry Stewart’s Be Your Self reveals the precarious stability of the concept of self as the work steps through the conventions we use to construct a singular and consistent notion of ‘I’. In an analysis of selfhood, Stewart situates the body at the centre of his inquiry.

In Be Your Self the dancers are transformed into erupting, powerful, creative entities projecting a plethora of physical images and impressions set to an unpredictable, cartoonish, electronic score.

The staging for the Be Your Self was designed by the New York architectural firm Diller, Scofidio + Renfro (MacArthur Foundation ‘Genius Award’ recipients).
