Empty Bodies - Provocaré Festival

Empty Bodies - Provocaré Festival
Thursday 6 – Saturday 14 July*
Directed by Zebastian Hunter
*Please note the dates for this show differ slightly from the Festival printed program dates. These dates have been realigned to suit the commitments of the Festival programming.

This acclaimed production will be a highlight of the Provocaré Festival 2018, featuring six talented professional circus artists performing skills from contortion to tissu, tightwire and more.

Empty Bodies is our journey from birth to death, examining our representation of self through language and clothing.

Director Zebastian Hunter sought to challenge the combination of physicality and text, with words by acclaimed writer Stephen Sewell interwoven into Ian Moorhead’s dystopian and poetic score. Stephanie Howe’s set and costume design - including a giant aerial net - arouses questions on the colourful uncertainty of identity, reflecting chaos in conflict with order. Meaghan Wegg's original choreography explores the intimate and gestural world grounding this abstract performance in the personal.

Empty Bodies features six, elite level NICA graduates, who will amaze and astound with their assortment of provocative solo and group acts.
