DOUBLE BUBBLE

Double Bubble spirals into an obsessive-compulsive game of double-dare that runs wildly both in and out of control.As the animated elements begin to accumulate underneath the performers, massing to fill the space, certain movements will trigger the dissolution of line and form, rubbing out like a spot, an itch, a thinning of the skin. An ongoing process of accretion, attrition and erasure that concludes in an end-game of empty white space.

A Bravo!FACT Presentation.



FRONTERA

'Frontera' (border, frontier): a real or imaginary dividing line; the extreme limit of
understanding in a particular area.

In an era of aggressive nationalism and corporate mass surveillance, the human body has never been rendered so visible, subject to increasingly invasive forms of industrial-scale oversight and processing.

Borders are boundaries, but they're also processes, liminal spaces where despair, desire and neoliberal economic imperatives meet the obscure(d) operations of power. Surveillance technologies represent an advancing frontier of knowledge and control, monitoring movement, defining identities and gathering data. Increasingly, the border moves with the body, and seeks to organise and orchestrate its passage through the world.

With a light-based scenography by United Visual Artists (UVA) which articulates the dialogue between choreography, architecture and live music by Fly Pan Am and field
recordings by Godspeed’s Dave Bryant, FRONTERA's 9 dancers navigate spaces of inclusion and exclusion; their bodies mapped in high resolution, their destinies unresolved.

As the public and private realms are consumed by monitoring technologies and tests of legitimacy, what space remains for the unruly, ungovernable body?
