Studio Ouest - La Briqueterie

Aiken’s work takes a plunge into the realms of metaphor at its most absurd and most obvious. Developed as part of ongoing research, Aiken’s piece navigates the body and surrounding objects in relation to the social constructs that operate between them including costume and representational movement. Exploring the absurd & representational, the piece aims to repeatedly shift the audience’s readings of simple objects and the body interacting with them. Three Short Dances plays with the tension between the sublime and the ridiculous, developing poignancy through absurdity and creating pathos with irony.

Presented in partnership with Dancehouse Australia


and with the support of  Keir Foundation
