Description

THE NATIONAL: NEW AUSTRALIAN ART 2017

A Metal Cry - Justene Williams
Saturday 1 April 11am & 12pm

Taking inspiration from the early twentieth-century European avant-garde and the Japanese dance theatre form of Butoh, this major new work by Justene Williams features dancers in fluoro pink concertina fan costumes fitted with accordions that give voice to their movements, others in voluminous dresses with chimes attached, tree sculptures and electronic violinists, all performing to a live score. Williams’ visceral work combines the formalism of the modernist avant-garde with a make-do aesthetic to explore contemporary suburban culture and our place in a tumultuous and fragmented world.
