VALLEY

OMER BACKLEY-ASTRACHAN

Valley,  a new ensemble work by young, early-career Israeli choreographer Omer Backley-Astrachan premiered at the Summer Dance Festival, Tel Aviv, in 2017. Valley  is set on a frozen and desolate Arctic island where a small society of four co-exist. Solitude, vulnerability and sensuality are touchingly drawn through Omer’s choreography in this exquisite Sisyphean cycle.

 ABOVE GROUND

FEATURING LEGS ON THE WALL AND KATHRYN PUIE & LUX ETERNA
A Double Bill of dance exploring the subtleties of above ground movement with apparatus.

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 what we are expected to act like? Directed by Joshua Thomson, the performers expertly utilise simple but commanding apparatus that looms over the space like a curtain of tentacles, revealing the underbelly of the story.

Presented with a new work by Kathryn Puie, Soft Prosthetics and Metal Gods, who brings her extraordinary versatile physicality to the stage in a variation of her career-long foray into dance for stilts in collaboration with visual artist, Lux Eterna.

Mature adult themes. Recommended age 16 plus.
