Matthew Steinke performs Noplace, an immersive multi-sensory musical score abstracted from the second half of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. This time-based collage repurposes found recordings synced...
MEETING is a choreographic study stripped to the bare essentials. The work pairs Antony Hamilton’s compulsive choreography with Alisdair Macindoe’s obsessive machine-making practice.
The two performers share space with 64 robotic percussion instruments. A relentless stream of activity unfolds, where the bodies enter states of heightened physical and mental agency, with all actions carried by the meditative pulse of the machine beat.
A focused recital, with Hamilton’s unique physical grammar and Macindoe’s bespoke musical instrument making, MEETING composes the body, the space and the robots into a dynamic and riveting choreographic sound installation.
