Lucy Guerin unleashes a dance premiere that will enfold you in the embrace of darkness.
The dramatic chorus is both the voice of the people and of your most intimate thoughts, a moving sculpture of bodies and concepts made flesh. From the mind of one of Australia’s most renowned choreographers springs a commanding new work that reaches back to the roots of ancient theatre to create something entirely of the now.
A moving whispering classical chorus weaves around the outskirts of the work, growing and shrinking as the main action takes place. Shadow and illumination, the individual and the mob, the fantastic and the all-too-real – these opposites melt into each other in a compelling maelstrom of dance with an irresistible undertow.
