Event description
Handsome is an ambitious new dance work, a choreographic puzzle that examines the ripples of family and legacy.

About this event

Dance artist and choreographer Jo Lloyd presents her latest commission Handsome, the result of a two year collaboration with an exceptional team of dancers and designers.

Handsome is an ambitious new dance work, a choreographic puzzle that examines the ripples of family and legacy. Working with personal histories and recollections, the performers cultivate semi-autobiographical narratives that oscillate between fact and fiction while considering the lineage of their movement.

Personal and universal, Handsome is built on concealed and warped family histories. The body remembers what the mind forgets.

The Substation galleries, bar and bookshop will open 45 minutes ahead of the performance.

Presented by The Substation and Jo Lloyd.

Supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and the Besen Family Foundation.
