PRESENTED AS PART OF TEMPERANCE HALL'S 2019 MELBOURNE FRINGE PROGRAM
Part dance, part play, part eco-horror. Please Do Not Move un-hierarchises the body in relation to its environment by blurring the lines between insideandoutside, placeandbody.
Caught in the linguistic nightmare of intellectualism the body attempts to define an *escape plan through sequences of fiction and narrative.
Please Do Not Move navigates live, self-generating choreographic systems that learn and dispel themselves, destabilizing the ground and making it harder to conquer the mountain.
Choreography by Rachael Wisby
Performed by Rachael Wisby and Nasim Patel
PLEASE DO NOT MOVE
19, 20 and 21 September, 6:30pm (45 minutes)
Temperance Hall, 199 Napier St South Melbourne
Tickets: Full $20, Conc. $18
This September, Temperance Hall presents a Melbourne Fringe program of new works by artists Deanne Butterworth, Alice Will Caroline with Mark Wilson, Rachael Wisby and Shelley Lasica.
Curated by Temperance Hall Artistic Director, Phillip Adams, the program places high calibre emerging and established artists side by side, from recent Victorian College of the Arts Dance graduate Rachael Wisby (a performer in Adams’ Glory, Dance Massive 2019) to esteemed choreographer of 30+ years’ experience, Shelley Lasica (Solos for Other People, Dance Massive 2015).
Discounted Evening Passes are available for those seeing two performances in a night. Temperance Hall’s atmospheric bar on the first floor will be open throughout the season, so audiences can enjoy intermission and see as many performances as they desire.
Temperance Hall is located on the traditional lands of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
