Part of a new double bill, choreographed by Brooke Stamp for Phillip Adams BalletLab, alongside Tomorrow by Phillip Adams. Sound by Garth Paine. Performed by Deanne Butterworth, Matthew Day, Rennie McDougall and Brooke Stamp.
Stamp has been exploring the idea present within both physics and eastern mysticism, that sound vibration was the genesis of all things in the universe including the creation of matter, DNA, nature and all that exists within the planetary and galactic reaches of space. Her collaboration with Paine imagines and aims to replicate modes of vibrational and energetic exchange, and engage them as a mirror to the notion of communication that lies between the dance, the dancers, the audience, and the environment and atmosphere we situate the performance within.
Using a rigorous improvisational process, Stamp and Paine are questioning can sound and vibration—beyond the realm of human hearing propel us into a continuum of evolution? Do we exist as one temporal entity across past, present and future? What do we 'sound' like in space? What do the vibrations triggered by moment and movement between us —artist and audience, look like as ‘sound’? Stamp and Paine’s experimentation deals with the pragmatic, the scientific, the imagined and the psychedelic to create a meditation on parallel dimensions that becomes visceral—to arrive at a point of communal authenticity and embodiment.
