Shopfront's Bodylines Ensembles explore routine, repetition and chaos in this new dance theatre spectacular! Reaching Out, Over & Over is an experiment in illusion, movement, space and time... What is your daily routine? What happens when someone or something interrupts this routine? What happens when something new invades your space? How do you protect your environment, and what would it take to let someone in? What is someone was really reaching out to you...?
Commissioned but Kogarah City Council, Reaching Out, Over & Over was the feature presentation of Take 6 Flicks, the council's short film festival celebrating International Day of People with Disability.
