Production Details / Press Releases
Lauren, Nicola, James and Chimene find themselves in a multitudinous world. They are confined to the organism to which they belong but they have freedom as individuals. They make the rules as they go along. The place in which they find themselves triggers their memories, some of which they leave behind. A tsunami breaks the shore, little creatures appear in your hand, the ground is sticky and hot. The human body is a hard drive that is controlled by elastic wires. They are playing out a story that has both been written before and never existed. Time is non-linear. This is a visceral work. It is an exploration of dualities and theatrical imagery. The creative development has consisted of a series of explorative writing and physical tasks to find something that does not belong to us. It is a work in progress.
Lauren Langlois is a dancer who began her career with the Australian Dance Theatre and Sydney Dance Company. In 2012 she relocated to Melbourne to collaborate with Antony Hamilton on his work “Keep Everything” for groundbreaking Australian contemporary dance company Chunky Move. She has since appeared with Chunky Move in Anouk van Dijk’s works “An Act of Now”, “247 Days”, “Complexity of Belonging” and “Lucid”, and has collaborated independently with Antony Hamilton, Stephanie Lake, Prue Lang, Larissa McGowan, Lisa Wilson, Jacopo Godani and Lucy Guerin Inc.
