Quaking Matter was commissioned in the autumn of 2016 by Tamara Ashley for The Ensemble: MA Dance Performance and Choreography at University of Bedfordshire. Quaking Matter was choreographed for a cast of seven young women and went on to tour in the spring of 2017 to five venues throughout the UK and to Malta.
"Whilst making this work I was drawn to thoughts of visual artists, Giuseppe Penone & Richard Serra. Their ideas of perception, weight, and gravity underpinned some the explorations in making the work." Gaby Agis
