Lighthouse is a multi-disciplinary piece by solo artist Hazel Lam that positions itself between dance, circus and performance art. A reference to Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse, Lam engages in the idea of gentleness as a tool in the face of great adversity and change. She explores feminine movement, gives it centre stage and reacts to modernity’s harsh realities and urban construction. Tackling with an unusual material – coils of PVC tubing and treating it as a companion, Lam tests its physicality and boundaries. Their duet of an organic body versus the inanimate tubes is playful yet antagonising. The tension between the two escalates throughout as she asks, is it there to hold her, entice her, keep her safe or restrain her?
Plastic has become one of the major environmental concerns in recent years. This piece is a reflection of how our generation is born into a plastic overflowing world and our role within it.
