What are we NERVOUS about and what is the cause?
NERVOUS is a dance, light, music and science experience that investigates the emotive and physiological state of nervousness. In conjunction with neuroscientist Greg Stuart (ANU) the work parallels the neurological functions of our brain, the networks of our planet and the cosmos.
Are both the human brain/body and the planet experiencing a frenetic, nervous state?
Set inside the Yale Columbia Dome at Mt. Stromlo Observatory, NERVOUS is created by dancer/director Alison Plevey with creative collaborators and performers Gabe Comerford, Olivia Fyfe and Janine Proost with lighting design by Robbie Gordon and sound production by Ben Worth.
