Frankie Snowdon & Madeleine Krenek are currently undergoing their residency at WTS in preparation for the performance at Araluen
Presented in partnership with Araluen, the work will see seven Northern Territory and three interstate artists come together to create the first experimental professional dance work to be created and presented in Central Australia.
About the Work: A single grain of salt sits atop a dormant mass. A tentative shuffle begins a migration, gravity-beckoned and persistent. Micro-movements and moments occur over expanses of time, interrupted and intersected by bodies. The trickle becomes a torrent, becomes a cloud, becomes a pattern; capturing breath and heartbeat before sweeping away.
In their first work made in Central Australia, choreographers Frankie Snowdon and Madeleine Krenek invite you to explore time and space through an offering of live dance performance, sound and sculptural installation. Through provocative sensorial immersion, The Perception Experiment strives to examine our experience of the physical world, blur its edges and offer an alternative view of how we might navigate through it.
