‘Satelliser’ is a French transitive verb that means to put into orbit. Satelliser: a dance for the gallery is an ongoing performance work realised by an intergenerational group of coworking dance artists. Coworkers cycle through layered labours of moving, speaking, listening and resting over the course of a day, as they hold buoyant space for conversation to emerge.
The work is being redeveloped through an online discursive rehearsal process across 5 time zones through multiple states and stages of lockdown. As the coworkers have each navigated scales of upheaval, dislocation, political turmoil and changing personal circumstances, the processes of being together through conversation have both amplified and challenged what they imagined this work might be and do.
Coworkers in 2021/22: Shivaangee Agrawal, Bonni Bogya, Christine Bramwell, Karen Callaghan, Iris Chan, Emilyn Claid, Katye Coe, Mia Quimpo Gourlay, Alexandrina Hemsley, Amrita Hepi, elena rose light, Ngozi “N/A” Oparah, Amaara Raheem, Arabella Stanger, Louise Tanoto, Amanda Thompson, Else Tunemyr, Jay Yule.

This performance will take place in BALTIC's Level 4 gallery. The performance will be supported by a British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreter on Sunday 17 October. Unfortunately due to illness there will be no BSL interpretation on Saturday 16 October.
Costumes for the performances have been designed and made by Janine Harrington.
