Our Suspended Corridors
Claudia Palazzo premieres new performance work Our Suspended Corridors, alongside her re-staged durational installation Vertebral disc at Ugly Duck, London on Saturday 16th September.
There are 26 vertebrae in the adult human spine. I couldn’t order a replacement. My spine is the length of this light.
Claudia Palazzo premieres new performance work Our Suspended Corridors, alongside her durational installation Vertebral disc at Ugly Duck, London. Created and performed alongside musician/producer Conrad Kira with lighting artist Marty Langthorne.
The Performance comprises dance, live sound, wheels, text and a lot of strip lights. It explores notions of urban healing and the concrete fetish, the absorption of bone, noise and cement. Navigating the complex tensions between inherent strength and the impact of damage.
Get up, just get up…up. It’s better to go out on a high.
Some new kind of high rise

Vertebral disc is an immersive installation that you can spend as much or as little time as you like in. There is no spoken text and you are free to explore the space at your own pace. Or have a dance if you want. This work was created during lockdown for one household at a time.
I need something that can represent me in my absence. Something to get up on the podium.
