Brisbane Festival and Brisbane Powerhouse Present

Angel-Monster

Angel-Monster

Full-bodied dance theatre where the agenda is Equality, Ownership and Individuality.

Enter a space caught in a cross-hairs: halfway between your bedroom-floor at 3am and an otherworldly celestial limbo. Here, inside a field of laundry, explosive choreography ignites and combusts beside you as an army of dancers explore the dreams and the nightmares, the tremble and the limits of the female experience.

Sex, consent, violence and empowerment crash-tackle together in a full-bodied conversation where the agenda is Equality, Ownership and Individuality.

This is raw, visceral confessional contemporary dance from Brisbane's very own prolific dance-theatre artists, Phluxus2 Dance Collective. Choreographed by award-winning choreographer Nerida Matthaei, and straight from a stellar season in Edinburgh, Angel-Monster is a portrait, a requiem and a call to arms for sisters, mothers, angels and monsters alike.
