extermination

I’ve been rehearsing my new work for the last two weeks, extermination, which opens on August 5th at Dancehouse

extermination is a meditation on Jean Baudrillard’s book Symbolic Exchange and Death; on bodies that are models, robots, animals, corpses; on heavy metal, Motorhead and Slayer; on clothes, costumes, makeup, underwear, and shoes, and every kind of bad behaviour; On Goya and Disasters of War, the death of God, the end of civilisation; on bodies beyond morality, betray, seduce, kill, undress; The collective insanity of delinquent groups filled with indescribable euphoria, an out-of-control blindness, completely certain of what they do.

For people in Melbourne, here are the details, for people outside Melbourne, the work will be on zero|ballet, my website for my performances sometime mid-August.
