Presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy and Stephanie Lake Company in Association with Culturelink, Singapore

Replica is a dynamic new dance work by Stephanie Lake Company which brings together a creative team of leading Australian artists and an international cast including Christina Chan (Singapore) and Aymeric Bichon (France).

Two figures emerge from the darkness and enter a heart-pounding, visceral world of split-second timing and melting fluidity. They are intricately tangled.

Replica is about symbiosis and the types of symbiotic relationships found in nature - including human nature. Mutualistic symbiosis sees both organisms benefit from the relationship; parasitic symbiosis sees one creature benefit while the other suffers. There is friction, aggression, tenderness and complicity.

With whip-smart unison alongside wild, animalistic choreography, Replica is the non-narrative story of two people travelling a winding road together. In this study of similarity and difference, we witness the fascinating intersection of two people - two dancers who need each other to create the work but also rail against their intimate interdependence.

Replica features collaboration with an internationally regarded team of artists including Robin Fox (music), Bosco Shaw (lighting) and Paula Levis (costume).

“Intimacy and violence are tightly woven in this deeply affecting dance piece.” Arts Hub (on Double Blind)

“Electric, white-hot and of universal appeal. Incredible.” Toorak Times (on Pile of Bones)

 Baby Cake by Yuhui Ng-Rodriguez  
Wednesday, 9 May 2018
to Sunday, 13 May 2018

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Event image
Preview Wednesday, 9 May
All shows 6:30pm, with a 12pm relaxed performance on Sunday, 13 May

Two performers, one baby. One life, one choice. Your hosts, Kerensa and Yuhui, are both women of childbearing age. One is a mother. The other is not. Both are acutely aware that single decision has the power to alter the course of one’s entire life.

This compelling live performance slips between the autobiographical and the absurd, the banal and the surreal, the conversational and the theatrical. Amidst chaos and control, restraint and rebellion, a baby watches the performance unfold from his throne. Drawing on their interest in domestic ritual, Diball and Ng-Rodriguez invite you in and offer morsels to share. Partake in their candid response to the pressures of being a good woman, a bad mother, becoming our mothers and what it means to have children. Or not.

 Jupiter Orbiting by Joshua Pether  
Thursday, 10 May 2018
to Sunday, 13 May 2018

8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Event image
Independent creator and performer of Kalkadoon heritage, Joshua Pether, takes us on a sci-fi adventure that opens up a new world filled with surreal and fantastical realities – questioning perceptions of what is real and what is not.

In his second solo work, Pether combines movement, sound and video to negotiate the hazy boundaries between fantasy and reality, myth and truth. Charting experiences of isolation and distance, this performative dance work negotiates personal identity and body politics. Throughout the piece, performer and audience develop a shared bond that explores perceptions of mental health, our relationship with trauma and our capacity for empathy.

Created and performed by: Joshua Pether
Sound Composer: Daniel von Jenatsch

 mi:wi by Taree Sansbury  
Wednesday, 16 May 2018
to Sunday, 20 May 2018

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Event image
All shows 7:30pm

mi:wi is a new dance theatre work that will show a world where past and future are intertwined using contemporary indigenous dance technique and the cultural practice of weaving from the Ngarrindjeri people of South Australia.

As Mother Nature’s fate hangs by a thread, we find ourselves scrambling for a lifeline. Though sometimes tangled, the connection back to our ancestry might just hold the answer. ‘Mi:wi’ refers to the invisible ties we have to our past and future, people and country. In this arresting dance-based work, choreographer and dancer Taree Sansbury thoughtfully re-connects three Indigenous women through the practice of traditional Ngarrindjeri weaving.

Looking back and moving forward with a growing sense of urgency, mi:wi speaks to the impact of climate change on ways of life while emphasising the importance of the passing on of culture to future generations. With one eye on the future and the other on the past, Sansbury weaves strands of timeless indigenous wisdom through the fragmented madness of our times.
