MicroMove returns in its third reiteration. The talents of Western Australia’s vibrant and dynamic dance artists will be showcased in a season of short works curated by renowned dancer and choreographer Rachel Arianne Ogle. MicroMove surrenders the theatre to movement, transforming both space and body for a nightly program of rigorous and innovative dance works.

As part of Summer Nights at FRINGE WORLD 2020.


Program:

angel wings. By Aimee Sadler and Isabelle Leclezio in collaboration with Annika Moses
Skin. To touch. Skin on skin. When a baby is born, an angel imprints the skin above the lip with her pinky.

The Collapse of Brief Systems by Dean-Ryan Lincoln
Systems of trauma – it is a timeless, liminal space where you return again and again. You keep responding to the disaster long after it has subsidised. The collapse, the complexity, the joy, the anguish, the pleasure.

Flower and Skin by Giorgia Schijf
Mother Nature is woman. How can we see nature as a living entity once again, and connect it back to its mother?

I Want To Do That by Jen Jamieson
A public dance class for a non-dancer. A rollercoaster of shame and fear, physical stumbling and humiliation, and a shared love of dance.

Girl and a Microphone by Isabella Stone
Amplification and suffocation. A chance to say something but not sure what to say, how to say it or who’s listening. Power – take over my body and an alter ego illuminates the space behind the stand. It’s all a performance but for your or for me, I’m not sure.

How’s Your Mum? by Not Sold Separately
How are you? Where are you going? I’m fine, are you fine? Are we there yet?

Sister by Ayesha and Rhiana Katz
A 22 year story.

Reflections by Scott Galbraith
To shine light on all parts of ourselves, the bad and the good.

The Presence of Wool by Symantha Parr
An atmospheric sound score sets the stage for spectral woollen mill workers, with machine like, repetitive movements. These lost souls subsequently create ghostly cocoon shapes with languid progress contrasted with wild abandonment.

The Farm by Tahlia Russell
Sound, movement, imagery, and stillness. Exploring the connection between biorhythms to a state of consciousness.
