Water splashing, rhythms vibrating, head banging dance that explores how we repair the damage through cultural, classical and contemporary movement, music and magic.

It has become about the rupture between states of chaos and organisation. On the one hand the dancers rally, galvanise and move in the same direction. On the other they thrash, shatter and collapse. There is domination and there is tenderness as they crystallise into mechanistic parts and fall into the wild.
SOUND Matthew Hindson, Philip Glass, Jonny Greenwood and Arvo Part, performed by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra
