“Playful and profound in equal measure, highlighting the imperfect but astonishing physical body as it moves through a computationally driven world.” —Contemporary Performance
A fascinating articulation of the body and mind in motion, MEETING is a choreographic study stripped to the bare essentials and combined with a minimalist, invented-instrument concert. This playfully precise work from Australia pairs Antony Hamilton’s compulsive choreography with Alisdair Macindoe’s obsessive machine-making practice. While the two performers share the stage with 64 robotic percussion instruments, a relentless stream of activity unfolds, all propelled by the meditative pulse of the mechanized beat. MEETING composes the body, the space, and the robots into a delightful and riveting movement/sound installation.
