Slow Burn, Together

Emma Fishwick
Upcoming
18–21 February
Perth Festival
Perth, WA

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. 

Slow Burn, Together is an antidote to the uncertainty of our times; a place of respite and building a human connection. With a wry sense of humour, the work demystifies high art and contemplates a female perspective as an ensemble of 15 women subvert their historic objectification to reveal the labour behind the facade. 

Let yourself be drawn into this series of moving pictures that collectively form a visual epic, offering a timely meditation on the world around us.
