In the immersive dance performance 1 Click Away, the audience will follow four women onto a journey into the world of packaging materials. In an artful and engaging display, parcels and cardboard boxes are combined and dismantled to create temporary sculptures and shifting landscapes.
Background to the piece is the huge increase in packaging waste produced by how we shop online. We want everything to be available, we want it to be cheap, and we want it now. The consequences of such behaviour not only involve mountains of unnecessary waste, but also tough working conditions for logistics workers and drivers.
1 Click Away takes a rather personal perspective by exploring the waste material in relation to the dancers’ bodies. Given how the excessive production of materials will influence our lives in the future, however, darker connotations should not come as a surprise...

"Gauhe makes unobvious, strangely-affecting choreographic choices to present the most cohesive group work I have seen in a while." Izzy Rogers, danceartjournal
Although inspired by my own experiences, my further research into psychological and biblical texts on fatherhood have led me to create a fictional narrative which reflects the tensions and hardships shared between fathers and sons.
Having recently graduated from London Contemporary Dance School, I am open to forms of art which are unfamiliar to me. Beside my exploration into floorwork, tension and gesture I have used this opportunity to spark my interests in spoken word and film, in a hope to further my artistic style for future endeavours.
