A catalytic double bill by choreographer/performers Antony Hamilton and Melanie Lane, in which the symbiotic elements of body, light, objects and sound occupy time and space to explode any perception of a static universe.
Hamilton’s Black Project 1 meditates on the synthesis between the gravity-bound body and its connection to the forces and minerals of the earth. Two beings relentlessly traverse a panoramic, linear terrain, leaving artefacts of human intervention in their wake as they go forth into solitude and emptiness.
Lane’s Tilted Fawn creates an intimate, intense, audio-sensitive universe where our urge to seek transformation through advanced technologies is brought into question. This is a world of sensory delight, in which an orchestra of lo-fi sonic objects propels a lone dancer through landscapes that are by turns luscious, melancholic, stark and utopian.
