Mickey is a new work by dance-artist Brooke Stamp, conceptualised by the image ‘the line is a labyrinth’.

Stamp explains this framework as exploring dance's subterranean, subconscious impetuses, trespassing into the worlds of spoken language and audial practice to ‘dislocate’ dance from its historical obligations to bodily form. 

An immersive dance performance, Mickey speculates on the rehearsal studio as a place of experimentation and production usually not seen by the public. Informed by absorbed choreographic practice and dance history, Stamp’s body memory is presented as an improvised subconscious psychic waste, the content of the improvisation an articulation of what the artist terms ‘psychophysical’. Live recordings of Stamp’s improvised words seeded in the psyche are regurgitated in real-time by musician Daniel Jenatsch, to build a feedback loop that powers the work. 

For Mickey, Stamp invites the audience in to witness the process of making in real-time, each performance being a unique presentation.
