James Batchelor and Collaborators



All Ages



A journey through art and science into the unknown.

Award-winning choreographer and performer James Batchelor and visual artist Annalise Rees spent two months at sea studying remote volcanic islands in the sub-Antarctic. From their experiences Deepspace was born.

Combining dance, sound and installation, Deepspace is a mesmerising, intimate performance that examines our curiosity for the unknown. Playing at the intersection of art and science, the body is taken to the extremities of remoteness and proximity, connectedness and isolation, certainty and uncertainty.

James Batchelor and Collaborators

James Batchelor's mission as an artist is to make work that inspires curiosity. He aims to shift assumptions, widen awareness and create possibility, and he strives to find ways that dance can be a conversation, collaboration and exchange with other disciplines and communities.

His work is particular in how it responds to context, from conception to presentation, always considering how a performance exists within a specific space and time. Batchelor's projects have been presented by major festivals and venues around the world in theatres, galleries, museums and public spaces.
