Creatures by Alison Currie & The Human Arts Movement
Creatures is an exploration of human movement and repetition. Oscillating and gradually morphing between movements, together the seven dancers shapeshift; signifying a flock, a single organism or diverse individuals. The work recognises humans as creatures.
For the inaugural Adelaide Dance Festival, Creatures will be performed at Samstag Museum of Art in response to the exhibition A Conversation with Jheronimus by South Australian-based visual artist Aldo Iacobelli. As the dancers move among Iacobelli’s installation of site-specific installations, a cross-disciplinary dialogue emerges about what it means to be human.
When performance art is good it hums and vibrates with energy. It reaches out to the audience and brings them in.
