An ocean of rice covers the floor. Five bodies shape and are shaped by this new and unfamiliar world. Driving sound pushes them further, harder…uniting them and driving them apart. How do you react when you’re in unfamiliar territory?
Dark Matter is a stunning multisensory exploration of human displacement and adaptation. The premiere work from performance makers Praxis, Dark Matter is a visceral collision of movement, cutting-edge digital projection, a pulsating live score and one metric ton of rice.
Bringing together award-winning artists: choreographer Laura Boynes, visual artist Alexander Boynes, cellist Tristen Parr and five of WA’s best dancers, this extraordinary new show is not to be missed.
PRAXIS is a multidisciplinary collective of Tristen Parr, Cellist/Composer; Alexander Boynes, Visual Artist; & Laura Boynes, Choreographer. They use expanded spatial practice to explore links between visual art, contemporary dance & sound.
