MEETING reveals a fascination with the articulation of the body and mind in motion. A choreographic study stripped to the bare essentials, the work pairs Antony Hamilton’s compulsive choreography with Alisdair Macindoe’s obsessive machine-making practice.

The two performers share space with 64 robotic percussion instruments. A relentless stream of activity unfolds, where the bodies enter states of heightened physical and mental agency, with all actions carried by the meditative pulse of the machine beat.

A focused recital, with Hamilton’s unique physical grammar and Macindoe’s bespoke musical instrument making, MEETING composes the body, the space and the robots into a dynamic and riveting choreographic sound installation.

“One of the most spectacular and innovative theatrical presentations, of any kind, I’ve ever seen, anywhere. Utterly spectacular.” – Crikey, on Black Project 1
