2015 Performance Program
DANCE IS MY LANDSCAPE
A photographic exhibition
Photographer Gregory Lorenzutti finds and frames movement with the keen eye and kinetic sensibility of a dancer. Dance is My Landscape plays with the boundaries between movement and image, body and land, Brazil and Australia, working the hybrid in-between of art forms. A photographic exhibiton that will take you on a journey in all the spaces of Dancehouse.
22 - 26 July
Choreographed and performed by Dancehouse Housemate/artist in residence Sarah Aiken, SET, is a dance for one body and several objects; a work straddling the absurd and representational, repeatedly shifting how we value simple objects and the body interacting with them, ultimately revealing the human in all that is represented.
Donna Uchizono (USA)
14 - 15 August
New York choreographer Donna Uchizono made this piece as a response to her 12-year endeavour to adopt a Nepalese child. Yet, Fire Underground is not about this story, rather it is about creating a space for an audience to feel the impact of the absence that arises when longing endures.
Arco Renz (BE)
21 - 22 November
In solid.states, Belgium-based German maverick Arco Renz places two accomplished dancers on an unstable moving platform. Performed by Javanese court dancer Eko Supriyanto and Melbourne choreographer Melanie Lane, solid.states borrows elements of their shared Javanese ancestry to trace the interplay between global and traditional forces. solid.states explores how change ultimately and intimately de-stabilises.
Self-Unfinished, Le Roy's emblematic 1998 solo, is concerned with representations of the body and notions of subjectivity; in it, he morphs through bodily configurations ranging from identifiable human figure to animal, to machine. Performed in silence, Self-Unfinished proposes a world of multiple possibilities and reveals Le Roy's ongoing interest in the production of subjectivities and modes of communicativity.
