Desirelines are the improvised tracks created by people who defy the ways designed for them by others.
Seven musicians and dancers use gleaming stainless steel tracks to navigate a digitally animated landscape in this powerful melding of contemporary ballet and new chamber music.
In this original concept by Benjamin Greaves, Gareth Belling’s choreography is etched onto the performers by Susan Hawkins’ soaring original compositions, while Pete Foley’s animation maps a concrete visual landscape that floats with Leigh Buchanan’s whimsical costumes.
Also featuring a mesmerising intersection of Sculthorpe's Irkanda 1 and dancer Michael Smith.
“This collaboration of live chamber music, contemporary dance and stage design is veritable soul food…” – Dancetrain Magazine
