Behind the Zig Zag was a live performance about malfunction – technological, electrical and cellular – featuring the anthropomorphism of everyday objects and highlighting the familiar tendency to imbue our possessions with human traits. Together with collaborator Marian Abboud and dancers Thomas Kelly and Taree Sansbury, Vicki will use this residency to further animate these objects through film. Representing the next stage in the project’s development, Behind the Zig Zag will be extended through the use of film editing and contemporary indigenous dance techniques.
