LONG DESCRIPTION

The highly charged and evocative sound and smell of a struck match provide the ignition point for A Small Prometheus, a work about the consequences of small actions and the fragility of physical systems.

Two of Australia’s most exciting and uncompromising artists, Stephanie Lake and Robin Fox, seamlessly intermesh choreography, sound and objects to create rich tension in a work that swings deftly between chaotic, free-form experiments and mechanically intricate moments. A Small Prometheus creates a strange and enthralling world of darkness, light and the spark that mediates the two.

MEDIA

“There are moments of sheer heart-stopping beauty. Theatrically ingenious… Lake knows how to direct the eye and keep the entire stage alive.” - Alison Croggon, ABC (2013)

“Above all, it is a dynamic piece of choreography where bodies spark off one another and its largely abstract nature allows for the exploitation of a wide range of movement vocabularies.” – Dance Australia (2013)
