Metal is a new work by dance company Lucy Guerin Inc and Ensemble Tikoro, a heavy metal choir from Bandung Indonesia led by Robi Rusdiana.
Through voice, movement, improvisation and composition Metal will explore the musical, cultural and theatrical contradictions of this unique collaboration.
Heavy metal is huge in Indonesia. Originally a western form, it resonates as resistance and a mode of expression within Indonesian culture.
Coming together in a choreography of voice and movement, Lucy and Robi reflect on why they have been so committed to their respective forms for decades.
Premiering in 2020 - more information to follow.
