Metamorphic {Traces}

Opens January 2024

January 2022 Rosanna Cook and Alex Billingham went to Scarborough to explore how their practices could interchange ideas. Rosanna wanted to see how dance manifests in non dancers’ bodies while Alex was eager to investigate how they could incorporate dance and movement into their disabled body.

Metamorphic (Traces) is more a scrapbook of that experience than a piece of work in itself. It acts as a trace memento of the time considering these ideas and how the environment became the hidden third partner in this dance.

The experiences and performative acts on a cold beach in Scarborough are not represented here but rather a trace element of the feelings and emotions felt. The actual acts exist in the memories of the participants and a few happily bemused locals and their dogs.  

This would not have been possible without the Jerwood 1 to 1 fund.

Artist: Alex Billingham

Alex Billingham creates work amongst the overlaps of Live art, Experimental Theatre, Film and Digital art. Their trans and disabled body collide and intermingle with their neurodiverse brain which they use to map out better ways of survival, making space for othered identities to exist and thrive. They enjoy an analogue approach to manipulating digital technology that allows them to explore a low-fi visual style that binds grime with glitter to make beautiful work.

Alex performs nationally and internationally and is currently developing a new theatrical show Salting the Wound.
