Momentum of Isolation is a work that started being researched in 2019. It is a work based around social isolation and loneliness. This first chapter of research is a chain of solos, for 7 performers, that was developed by company artists online and in isolation. Each artist uniquely approached an aspect of isolation and loneliness through these solos.

As the work had to be developed in isolation and through digital platforms, this chapter of the project has taken on a much more singular focus on each artist’s personal interpretation. As these solos were developed in home spaces and in isolation, the artists are performing their solos in smaller performance spaces – averaging 6′ x 9′ – as well as performing these solos in-relation to walls and surfaces in their environment.
