Two of Australia’s most exciting and uncompromising artists, Stephanie Lake and Robin Fox, explore human dynamics through the interaction between dancers, fire-driven kinetic sculptures and sound. A struck match is the impetus, opening up an enthralling world of darkness, light and the spark that mediates the two.
The highly evocative sound and smell of a struck match provide the ignition point for A Small Prometheus; a new dance work that explores the intricate dynamics of human interaction.
Combustion and transformation drive the unfolding choreography as dancers synchronise, mesh and collide. Fire-driven kinetic sculptures become part of live interactive movement that intertwines between dancer, sculpture and machine.
Two of Australia’s most exciting and uncompromising artists, Stephanie Lake and Robin Fox, seamlessly interlace choreography, sound and objects to create rich tension in a work that swings deftly between chaotic, free-form experiments and mechanically intricate moments.
A Small Prometheus is detailed and exacting, with the physical limitations of the dancers pushed to create a strange and enthralling world of darkness, light and the spark that mediates the two.
