SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Show 1 | 11 – 12 September
Eyes staring, shadows floating, white bird fleeting, like a heavy stretchy filled up balloon, skin grazing burning on steel. An interpolation of multiple meanings, perspectives, behaviours, reactions, and responses between two individuals. Keyframe explores the point of contact between two people meeting for the first time, and the internal conversations, exchanges and the potential conflicts that may occur.
