Eyes closed with chair and radio is a solo improvisation performance based on the notion of ‘listening’. Through attention to kinaesthetic awareness, spontaneous movement is discovered as a response to sensation while a live radio broadcast layers chance meaning through a coincidence of audio and visual signifiers. Eyes closed with chair and radio was part of the production Keepsake Minus 3, produced by Underground Dance Theatre and Nicola Elliott. The Production was awarded a 2012 Standard Bank Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival and received the Kyknet Fiesta Award for Best Dance Production in 2013.
