and more development of  'Concrete Impermanence' in the studio at Restless Dance Theatre and online, on the phone, in the lounge room, in my mind. So much still to do. Look out for the premier https://www.adelaidefestivalcentre.com.au/events/concrete-impermanence/ in May 2018!!

Adhocracy 2017 by alison currie

Last weekend Alisdair Macindoe, Lewis Rankin and I had an amazing four day development as part of Adhocracy 2017 at Vitalstatistix. The focused atmosphere of Adhocracy (where several groups of artists from across the country come together to work, share and discuss ideas) provided a perfect space for us to experiment with the early stages of this new Idea. Alisdair Macindoe and I have collaborated across several projects over the last 10 years, yet this was our first time Co-directing a work. The working title is Solo for (Hu)man and Foam and we are certain that we would like to keep developing this work with Lewis Rankin, though we are less certain about the title.

"This new dance work (in progress) uses the materiality of the waste product Styrofoam to explore the fragility of the human – in performance and in the biosphere. At its most frivolous Solo for (Hu)man and Foam is a playful dance experiment; at its deepest it reflects the possibilities and limits to individual change in the face of environmental disaster." - This was the marketing text for our project at Adhocracy and remains quite accurate. -http://vitalstatistix.com.au/residencies/solo-for-human-and-foam/
