From South East local to internationally renowned, award-winning choreographer, Lewis Major has had an incredible career trajectory. He is returning to the region to present his latest work – S/WORDS and Unfolding.
After stellar performances at the Adelaide Festival, his latest double bill is a great way to discover the genius and beauty of his work.
Unfolding melds fluid dance with shifting 3D projection animation by creative coder Fausto Brusamolino and an epic score by James Brown to create an immersive journey that invites the audience to think about the concept of duality.
S/WORDS follows a slap-dash tribe of performers coming to terms with the failures of a system that they once believed in: an apocalyptic, absurd vision of a collapsing world where language is no longer used to build trust and solidarity, but to destroy and divide.
“And there they were: locked in a theatre, dancing, while the world slipped into chaos outside…”
With his trademark cinematic style and acerbic wit, Major weaves a study in the contrasts and contradictions, the violence and transcendence of the modern human condition.
Contains nudity, strong language, violence, smoking.
Recommended for audiences 12+.
Utilises strobe effects, theatrical haze and smoke.
