Legs On The Wall
In Cat’s Cradle, Australia’s celebrated physical theatre company Legs On The Wall, explores the depths of what is private and what is public. How do we navigate between what we desire to do and how we are expected to act?
The performers expertly utilise a commanding apparatus that looms over and around the space, like a curtain of tenacles, revealing the underbelly of the story. Cat’s Cradle tantalises, as it coerces the audience to look at their own desires, where reality and fantasy collide.
This work delves into and exposes the true reality of intimacy between a couple who each crave more, and push each other’s limits. Cat’s Cradle hums with an underlying tension, sometimes playful sometimes painful, and a little bit sexy.
“Risky, gutsy and sometimes wild” (The Sun Herald)
Mature adult themes. Recommended age 16 plus.
SOFT PROSTHETICS AND METAL GODS
KATHRYN PUIE AND LUX ETERNA
What is prosthetic to what? How repressed is the body? Existing in a highly ocularcentric culture have we lost touch with the haptic realm… As a species dependent on external devices/prosthetics to enhance, extend and expand our human experience, is it possible to breathe life and extend consciousness into these inanimate objects? Who is moving what, and what is moving who?
Kathryn Puie brings her extraordinary versatile physicality to the stage in a new variation of her career-long foray into dance for stilts in collaboration with visual artist, Lux Eterna.
“There’s an ambiguity in prosthesis, underpinned by labile space between replacement, augmentation and generation. Between, recovery,substitution and experimentation” (The Prosthetic Cosmos E. Grosz)
