Inspired by One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, gallery installation Déjà Vu and touring production Arcadio saw a daring collaboration between Kevin and Louise and leading Spanish installation artist Rosa Sanchez. Rosa created an installation at Birmingham’s Ikon Gallery, and also the setting for Arcadio. Motionhouse created Arcadio, a touring production with live music, and also Déjà Vu, a series of performance episodes which led the audience through Rosa’s installation.
Arcadio and Déjà Vu were commissioned by Motionhouse and the Ikon Gallery as part of the European Arts Festival, and secured the company a Digital Dance Award. Arcadio followed its Birmingham premiere with a national tour of the UK plus dates in Scandinavia.
Premiered November 1993, Birmingham, UK
