David Rosetzky and Jo Lloyd


In development with Performance & Art Development Agency and Vitalstatistix. Presented as part of Physical Forces with ACE Open.

Speech Pattern is an investigation into contemporary subjectivity utilising performance, video and installation. The work draws from the fields of dance and the moving image, alongside queer, feminist and psychoanalytic theory.

Using a collaborative process, artist David Rosetzky will work with choreographer Jo Lloyd and performers Shelley Lasica and Stephen Phillips to explore the construction of memory, behaviour and interpersonal relationships.

Taking as its premise that the subject and construction of self is relative to others and dependent on language, Speech Pattern aims to challenge normative views of gender and identity by refiguring conventions of speech, image and movement through performance and installation.
