For those who love exciting contemporary dance …
Amy Wiseman, 3, 3 and 3 guest in November 2013, will be appearing with Carly Armstrong (pictured) and Jessica Lewis—Unkempt Dance—at the forthcoming Summer Nights program at the Blue Room, Perth, part of the 2014 Fringe World festival.
The production, Paperland, is described as ‘a page-turning contemporary dance triptych. Maps, diaries, napkins, passports, receipts, parking fines, movie tickets … where does your paper trail lead? Toyi-Toyi Theatre, in collaboration with Unkempt Dance and Emma Fishwick, presents three short dance works that consider our relationship with paper.’
Unkempt Dance: Creature of habit
We record the big events in our lives, but what about the everyday? By counting coffees consumed, hours of trashy TV watched, loyalty cards stamped and various other daily rituals, see how the reality of everyday life differs from our perception of it.
Emma Fishwick: A dance with no home
A new solo dance work exploring displacement and connectedness, choreographed to play with ideas of space, time and meaning. Get lost in a limbo of deeply layered imagery and beautiful movement.
Toyi-Toyi Theatre: The space between
Every year more people traverse the same patterns on the earth, leaving their homelands to find a new temporary place of safety. Inspired by travellers’ maps, media coverage of migration and the dancers’ own personal stories, The space between explores the history of people crossing borders and our endless search for home.
18–22 February, 7:30pm
Blue Room Theatre, Perth Cultural Centre, 53 James Street, Northbridge
