Review of Amorphous

Flowing gowns and myths at SITE performance

This week, in the performance theatre of CSM, LCF hosted an exhibition of its graduating students work from the BA (Hons) Performance programmes in an evening full of live performances, short films and breath-taking displays of some of its student’s finest work.

In a large and dimly lit room, with branches and leaves covering the floor, lay home to the works of the BA (Hons) Costume for Performance students. Flowing gowns and intricately detailed costumes hung from the ceilings in a mystical display that was truly awe inspiring. It was in this room that, at thirty-minute intervals, you could catch a live performance of Katie Anderson’s work Amorphous. Dancers used their flowing costumes, all of which were created by Katie herself, to portray the waves and currents in an enchanting performance that held the attentions of a large audience.

Also in this room was the work of student Jenifer Enid Rodgers, whose work is based on a book called Shadow in the Glass by Ian Irvine. With large extended arms made of “armature wire and copper and Lycra with stippled latex on top, which is then spray-painted”, Jennifer’s ‘whelms’ are “servants of darkness” that are supposed to “strike fear in to the hearts of the people that they chase” One of these creatures was there as a live installation at the exhibition, where it certainly made an impression on visitors as it walked around trying to entrap them in its arms.

Whilst visitors enjoyed a complimentary drink or two, renowned make-up artist Alex Box, shared her views on the evening:

I think it’s amazing to see this many people working in a space that is actually very sprawled out and which you really have to navigate through. There is a tying overall theme and its kind of a mood that you get even though it’s quite eclectic. There seems to be this incredible sort of thread that joins everything together.

make-up and prosthetics student who was mentioned by Alex Box was Erica Navage. Alex said how Erica had stood out because “she had done everything herself, her costumes, hair and make-up, the film, everything.” For her work she had “realised three myths in form and then created a plot where her victim encounters them all in a forest”, Erica explains that she “wanted to utilise all the things [she] had used at university.” This meant that her work incorporated not only prosthetics, wigs and monster character make-up but also beauty make-up as well and this was done within all three of her characters.

Overall, the night showcased a great diversity of work in all areas of performance and it is clear that many of these students have bright futures ahead of them. Providing guests with an enchanting evening that explored magical worlds, the breadth of work that students had undertaken was truly magnificent and inspirational.
