Concentricity is a site-specific work created in collaboration with dancers from REVEL for Art Not Apart. In response to the theme of the festival: Today I, Tomorrow You, it comprised a series of solos and contrasting ensemble work, exploring the complex relationships between a community and its constituent individuals. The work was performed at the Shine Dome (Australian Academy of Science).
My community educates me. It curates what I consume. What I consume affects what I think. What I think becomes what I contribute, what I create, what I affect. I affect you. You and I shape our community.
‘Concentricity’ interrogates our motivations and priorities regarding our relationships and the ripple effects of our actions. Within a world of brand-building and burnout should we be focusing our attention on global issues or self care? Should it be one before the other?
