Watch This Space was created as part of Rikkai's first digital site specific duet set as the launch of Rhythmflow in August 2016. The piece was then supported by Artists 4 Artists work in progress showcase at Redbridge Drama Centre, then went on to be presented at Heritage A User's Manual at South Bank Centre and as a double bill at Bermuda Festival in 2020.
Watch This Space is a light-hearted story that unfolds as two friends explore the space together using tap rhythms and travel through the space in a contemporary flow.
The duet tackles the ideas of a creative discovering a new tempo. The dancers use the ground and various objects around the space to playfully explore and use objects to create rhythms and movement patterns.
