An experiential work of dance theatre set in a leading hotel, check in with your fellow guests and be immersed into a poignant and at times hilarious imaginative environment.
On this travelling adventure, the hotel's sophisticated bar and lush rooms with views are contrasted by the stark undertones of the nooks and crannies of its back-of-house operations. Guided by an evocative soundscape by Jason Sweeney, the physical conversation takes a similarly diverse journey. Witness a tender and cheeky duet in a private room then an urgent physical explosion in the laundry. All looks neat and tidy but what is going on behind the scenes of these emotional dance vignettes?
Challenging themes of visibility, authority, self-worth and relationships, the dancers ask you to uncover meaning in the delicately crafted movement. Both elegant and humorous, be surprised and enchanted by this exquisite performance experience.
Intimate Space premiered at Hilton Adelaide as part of Adelaide Festival from 3-19 March 2017.
The season sold out prior to opening and received 10 brilliant reviews.
Intimate Space was programmed as part of Bleach* Festival as part of Festival 2018 for Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April 2018.
“5 STARS. Innovative, potent, bold and beautiful, Intimate Space is an extraordinary and highly entertaining experience.”
