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).
“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.
