“The polar tensions in this remarkable work made it one of the finest experiences of dance I’ve ever witnessed.” – The Sunday Age, on Future Perfect
In this new work by Melbourne choreographer Jo Lloyd (Future Perfect, 2013), hypnotic tension is generated by three dancers as they negotiate a progressively unravelling system of choreography. Navigating their physical histories, both recent and distant – from traces of folk dance to idiosyncratic body rhythms – the performers reveal a series of desperate encounters, in a destabilising flood of movement.
The questions remain: can this confusion be sustained, and where does it lead us?
Lloyd has brought together some of Melbourne’s finest creatives for this fascinating work – including dancers Rebecca Jensen (OVERWORLD, Dance Massive 2015) and Shian Law (Personal Mythologies, Next Wave 2014).
