Perth choreographer Rachel Arianne Ogle wields her technical and extremely physical style to draw immense unseen forces in the bodies of four dancers. Inspired by tectonic shifts, gravitational torsion and states of emotional rupture, 'precipice' is a dance of abandon and precarious control.
Ogle has assembled leading performance designers to create a multi-sensory experience where choreography unfolds within an electrifying light and sound installation. Contrasting precision and strength with mounting tension and fragility, this is a bold and unique work of contemporary dance from one of Australia's rising choreographic artists.
Premiered at Studio Underground, State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, 21-24 August 2014.
Nominated for a Helpmann Award for 'Best Dance Work' in 2015.
Shortlisted for an Australian Dance Award for 'Outstanding Achievement in Independent Dance' in 2015
