For ‘Trace Live’ Agatha Gothe-Snape collaborated with a group of dancers to interpret a visual score on display in the ‘Trace’ exhibition space, and to create a new iteration of Three Ways to Enter and Exit, which was first performed by dancer Brooke Stamp in 2011. This new work, called Other Ways to Enter and Exit, was developed as a response both to Stamp’s dance and Gothe-Snape’s remembered account of it, as well as its new context in the exhibition. The work offers up a class of ideas — thoughts or suggestions for many possible courses of action. As with all art, you are free to make of it what you will, though in this instance you are invited to dance, rather than simply think.
