Five people abandon the uncertainties of the present for a future that is already written.
In collaboration with some of Melbourne’s finest performers and creatives, Jo Lloyd’s award-winning FUTURE PERFECT compellingly explores circumstance, transitions and the unknown. On a metallic set suggesting both infinite possibilities and barriers, immersed in rhythmic and shimmering sound, five powerful dancers rigorously criss-cross the space, pursuing an intricate choreography that sets up a fine, visceral balance between the exquisite and the menacing.
Lloyd’s distinct and vibrant dance aesthetic has led to nominations and awards including The Age award for Best Dance Performance of 2011, Best New Work and Highlight of the Year in Dance Australia and three Green Room Award nominations for FUTURE PERFECT.
FUTURE PERFECT fittingly encapsulates Lloyd’s interest in shifts in perception and beliefs in relation to the present and the future.
