Shape On Us

2 March - 3 March

$110 – $160

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Performed by leading contemporary dance company Vertigo Power of Balance and choreographed by renowned choreographer Sharon Fridman, Shape on Us is a striking work that re-examines social conventions and truisms surrounding the dancing body.

As eight dancers with multiple physical abilities break away from the aids that serve some of them in everyday life, a collective organism takes shape in the encounter between unique bodies. Exploring their individual fragilities and needs, the dancers confront the push and pull of rejection and concern, meeting in moments of tension, support, loneliness and love. Gradually, as the piece unfolds, disparate expressions merge to create an astoundingly tender collective language of touch and cooperation.

Shape on Us challenges taboos around looking at the different body. Powerfully embracing the delicate physical systems that transform involuntary movements into deliberate gestures, it questions our perception of what is considered natural and abnormal.

First presented in 2020, Shape on Us is the product of Vertigo Dance Company’s ongoing engagement with the disability community.

Part of No Limits 2024.
