re(a/t)ch explores ritual ceremonies of offering and acceptance as Charlie Dearnley tries to find and reflect on spiritual experiences by imbuing actions, tasks and events with otherworldly importance. Through reflecting on a christian upbringing he attempts to make some sense of his own constantly shifting belief system, and then express that through a combination of spoken word and dance.
Charlie Dearnley’s interdisciplinary practice uses performance to explore themes of spirituality and mortality. Charlie has shown work, delivered workshops and curated events in venues across the country, including the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art Gateshead, Islington Mill Salford, and as part of Glasgow International.
