Distant forces beyond our control intervene in everyday lives in Laura Boynes’ world premiere of Equations of a Falling Body.
Our contemporary world is wildly unpredictable. The ‘elsewhere’ of distant forces – climate, cosmos, politics, memory – continually intervene in our everyday lives. It’s mostly beyond our control – encountered as idle distractions, radical interruptions or insistent voices inside that re-shape and cypher our thoughts and desires. Equations of a Falling Body sets those forces in motion, using real time choreography to create conundrums between James O’Hara, Ella-Rose Trew and Timothy Green, three of Perth’s most virtuosic physical performers. Comic, bleak and profound by turns, what emerges is our capacity for resilience through striking and impromptu cinematic sequences to leave you both reflective and hopeful.
Crafted and live-conducted by Laura Boynes, one of WA’s finest choreographic talents, Equations of a Falling Body is a mesmerising, immediate and relevant performance attuned to our post-digital age.
