David Rosetzky’s enigmatic project ‘Composite Acts’ features a series of performances with choreography by Jo Lloyd and performed by Shelley Lasica, Harrison Ritchie-Jones and Arabella Frahn-Starkie, with set-design by Sean Meilak. ‘Composite Acts’ traverses video, performance, choreography, set-design and photography to explore non-binary identities and the relative and fragmentary nature of the self. To produce the work, Rosetzky interviewed his collaborators about their personal relationships and family histories to devise a script that forms the nexus of the piece. The script is subsequently spoken, deconstructed, and integrated with choreographed movement enacted in dialogue with a suite of sculptural objects.
