27 Jan - 30 Jan
VENUEThe Blue Room Theatre
Curated by Bernadette Lewis
900 seconds of anything goes. This year, everyone’s favourite short works program returns with 50% more seconds! Across three weeks, artists will respond to their curator and mentor’s provocation, with each week presenting a new slate of works.
The second week of 900 Seconds is curated and mentored by dancer/choreographer extraordinaire Bernadette Lewis, with a focus on works with a strong physical current and cross-collaborative process.
Reimagined by Giorgia Schijf
An improvised synthesis of dance, music, and visual art; a conversation lost in imagination. You are invited to create your own stories inspired by this ever-evolving artistic exchange.
Fake Empire by Samuel Bruce
A poetic musing delving into the fiction that we form about ourselves and others in contemporary times. An encouragement to reflect on ideas of comparison, self-fulfillment, and human connection.
Oy Vey by May Greenberg
A potential remedy for human stupidity is a dose of humility.
Swan Twink (Pas De Youth) by Andrew Sutherland
When I was 18 I used to pass myself off as the actor from the film Billy Elliott all grown up to get free drinks at gay bars. Now, entering my 30s, I take a desperate pivot into classical ballet. Part-autobiographical performance, part-dance class, this is a dying swan song to youth and the illusion of perfection.
