A puzzle of countless pieces.
A set of characters discovers the hidden stories of pop-cultural icons from the high heel to the BMX bike. Meeting surprising and violent ends, bodies and objects collide via a sinister vanishing screen. From rigor mortis to The Karate Kid, Larissa McGowan’s (Australian Dance Theatre, So You Think You Can Dance) long-running fascination with the skeletal form has resulted in a work that cuts to the quick with sharp angles, acute physical strength and a choreographic pace that has the dancers’ very bones popping, locking and pulsing in place.
