The highly charged and evocative sound and smell of a struck match provide the
ignition point for A Small Prometheus; a new work for five dancers about the
consequences of small actions and the fragility of physical systems.

Combustion and transformation drive the unfolding choreography as
dancers synchronise, mesh and collide. Fire-driven kinetic sculptures become part of
live interactive sound-and-movement loops between dancer, sculpture and machine.

Two of Australia’s most exciting and uncompromising artists, Stephanie
Lake and Robin Fox, seamlessly interlace choreography, sound and objects
to create rich tension in a work that swings deftly between chaotic, free-form
experiments and mechanically intricate moments. A Small Prometheus creates
a strange and enthralling world of darkness, light and the spark that mediates
the two.
