Wall – Study One

This monochrome image displays the dancer Maëva Berthelot leaning upside-down against a wall. She is balancing on the top of her back and has her legs in the air.

Wall is an ongoing series of short movement studies undertaken with dance artists at Clod Ensemble Studios.

In each study a single dancer moves against a white wall.


In ‘Wall – Study One’ (2021) Maëva Berthelot moves across the wall as if making a diagram or drawing. The wall becomes a blank canvas for spare, striking gestures and shapes. 

Paul Clark’s score responds closely to the movement with violin played by Damsel Elysium (Associate Artist, Clod Ensemble).
