I will present a live visual performance - Where We All Meet, around the topic of the eel migration, focusing on their journey across the ocean. The performance is inspired by my research on the eel’s mysterious life cycle I undertook as part of the FLAMIN Fellowship programme, supported by the Arts Council England and the Fenton Arts Trust. I worked with choreographer Georgia Tegou @georgia_tegou to develop a dance piece that imagines the eels’ act of love.
It is thought that all European eels spawn in the Sargasso Sea, in the western Atlantic. No matter where they live, once sexually mature, they turn a silvery colour and make their final arduous journey to this one location, driven there by instinct. Yet, there is no scientific evidence of where exactly the eels are spawning nor what the act looks like. Scientists have so far only speculated on the occurrence of this mysterious event. .
