Highlights from the live recording of Collusion's DESIRELINES.
Presented by Collusion, the Judith Wright Centre and Brisbane Festival.
Desirelines are the improvised tracks created by people who defy the ways designed for them by others. Six musicians and dancers use gleaming stainless steel tracks to navigate a digitally animated landscape in this powerful melding of contemporary ballet and new chamber music.
In this original concept by Benjamin Greaves, Gareth Belling’s choreography is etched onto the performers by Susan Hawkins’ soaring original compositions, while Pete Foley’s animation maps a concrete visual landscape that floats with Leigh Buchanan’s whimsical costumes.
Collusion is Queensland’s own original fine art music and dance ensemble. Together for 13 years, this group of award-winning chamber musicians, in collaboration with composers, a choreographer and dancers, creates evocative performances underpinned by heart, beauty and warmth.Photos by FenLan Photography.
