PRESENTED WITH THE DANCE CENTRE

This hypnotic work begins with five dancers, each trapped in their own loop of motion and gesture. They change their movement in response to each other, while manipulating the space around them through control of the lighting and electronic sound score. Gradually the performers merge, attempting increasingly complex feats, and with these interactions come new rules, new restrictions, new compromises… By the time the dancers are moving as a group, their multiple obligations—to the lighting, to the sound loops and to each other—are so demanding that they’re working at the brink of impossibility.

In this performance, all is laid bare for the spectator: the audience witnessing a process without an endpoint, sharing the space and energy with the performers. This sense of transparency and community is essential to the meaning of Loop, Lull, which hides behind no narrative except bodies and movement in constant negotiation. It’s about people coping with change together, and all the beauty, vulnerability and risk that entails.
