Choreographer Lucy Guerin and artist Patricia Piccinini collaborate on a new visual performance for the 2003 Melbourne International Arts Festival. Created especially for the unique dimensions of the Screen Gallery in the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
An exciting visual performance exploring ideas of evolution and change in terms of the biological, the cultural and the personal. Eight solo performers enter projected environments created by four visual artists, forming a nexus of the natural and the artificial. Together Guerin and Piccinini create a space where three-dimensional bodies and two-dimensional projected images powerfully interact.
