In a golden world of coconuts and grapefruits, piles of books and high heels, a clothing rack and a gramophone, Perth-based choreographer Emma Fishwick draws you into mesmerising vignettes filled with unexpected delights. Infused with a wry sense of humour, Slow Burn, Together is an antidote to the uncertainty of our times. A place of respite, and slowing down; of building human connection and demystifying high art.
Through a series of living pictures that collectively form a visual epic, Slow Burn, Together contemplates a female perspective of a world where we can be gentle, journey inward and pay attention to the experience of sitting longer with our thoughts, our ideas and time itself. There isn’t a singularity to each moment on stage, rather a slow experience, a collection of encounters that create an ongoing conversation between you and the work.
Drawing from the masters of the Baroque and Pre-Raphaelite eras, Emma Fishwick plays with the tension of time and creates space for self-reflection and observation. Slow Burn, Together contemplates a female perspective as an ensemble of 15 women subvert their historic objectification to reveal the labour behind the façade. Let yourself be drawn into this series of moving pictures that collectively form a visual epic and offer a timely meditation on the world around us.
