Beyond the Waves is a site-specific dance work by acclaimed choreographer and dancer, Chris Pavia, exploring the sculpture of G F Watts in the collection at Watts Gallery.

The dance work was commissioned by Watts Gallery Trust in collaboration with DAiSY (Disability Arts in Surrey) and with mentoring and production support from Stopgap Dance Company. It is the result of Chris’ time spent as Artist in Residence at Watts Gallery from November 2020 to March 2021, supported by Arts Council England.

Beyond the Waves is a series of three solos choreographed by Chris in collaboration with and danced by artists from Stopgap Dance Company: Abbie Thompson, Nadenh Poan and Christian Brinklow and music composed by Andy Higgs. The solos were captured on film by Roswitha Chesher and the film work will be presented as an installation piece at Watts Gallery. Chris was supported by Tom Goodwin and Callum Graham.  

Beyond the Waves will be on display in the Historic Gallery, alongside our exhibition A Fragmented Legacy: G F Watts and Sculpture.

The filming station is made up of three screens and the film is approximately fifteen minutes long and will be played on repeat.
