“A powerful dance/theatre hybrid… Conversation Piece makes the mind work, the audience delighting in its play with their intelligence as it draws into consciousness their inherent knowledge of how talk works and they witness the palpable physicality that is ambiguously entwined with it.”

melded minds & bodies
john bailey: antony hamilton & melanie lane, clouds over berlin

“Hamilton & Lane appear as gleaming black wraiths making their way across a post-urban wasteland. It’s a vision that gestures to the choreographer’s earlier interests—aerosol art, digital tech, breakdance—while stripping away any literal referents. The dance itself may be Hamilton’s most developed and sustained exploration of his own practice.”

tweaking reality
philipa rothfield: this monster body and one show only

Monster Body, Atlanta Eke, Next Wave Festival 2012 Monster Body, Atlanta Eke, Next Wave Festival 2012

“Atlanta Eke was born decades after the advent of second wave feminism. She doesn’t need to make space to be heard. She can invent. This Monster Body is an attempt to create something and in so doing to destroy something else, to rattle the bars of the cage so as to break with convention.”

the body: beginning and end
keith gallasch: matthew day, intermission; adt, be your self

Matthew Day, Intermission Matthew Day, Intermission

“Intermission feels personal and purgatorial, although Day’s interests as expressed in interviews and his program notes indicate no such inclination towards self-exploration. Even so, the work is a dark pleasure, its grim beauty born of its curious suggestiveness and a relentless wave structure.”

between god and human
philipa rothfield: jo lloyd’s future perfect

Luke George, Madeleine Krenek, Future Perfect Luke George, Madeleine Krenek, Future Perfect

“The strength and power of Future Perfect is found at a distance, in the slow transformations of the group, in the ways in which, together, the group becomes bigger, more than human. That distance in turn enables perception to be freer, able to stray into the neighbourhood of the imaginary..”

at the crossroads of the senses
varia karipoff: tim darbyshire, more or less concrete

More or Less Concrete, Tim Darbyshire More or Less Concrete, Tim Darbyshire
photo Ponch Hawkes
“In More or Less Concrete, the audience witnesses a kind of abstraction of the body and its movements. The slow, dreamy pace makes this as much a study in sculptural forms as dance. Through sensory-challenging sound and lighting, it is also a retelling of these snatches of memory through performance.”

next wave day tripping

"The performance builds in a series of repetitions, torsos bent over and arms circling as feet scoot back across the floor, before the dancers return to stand on the rim of the circle. Patterns repeat, so when one of the dancers moves in a slightly different direction it is startling."

"There was a great sense of community engagement as sensuous hula shimmied alongside boot scooting and hysterical dummy-spit met cute kitty. "
