I’m Liquid

Sold Out
A visceral, affectionate ensemble piece with volcanic energy.

In this dance and martial arts fusion by Kinetic Orchestra, a Helsinki-based contemporary dance company, finely tuned pair work mixes with movement illusion.

Taking a dry look at human life and its emptiness through uncanny ensemble movement, I'm Liquid plays on the martial arts trope of bodies transforming into water. The piece’s silky-smooth movement creates the impression of rippling, threatening, unpredictable liquidity, and the dancers’ martial arts belts allow them to lift and carry one another, creating a feeling of zero gravity.

Recipients of the 2019 Union of Dance and Circus Artists of Finland Achievement Award, Kinetic Orchestra are renowned for their comic originality and adventurous energy.

Supported by the Finnish Institute in London

"I saw an excerpt of I'm Liquid in Helsinki last year and was blown away by the fluid mixture of dance, acrobatics and martial arts. It’s both a departure and a progression to bring the brilliant and acclaimed Kinetic Orchestra to Jacksons Lane – they push boundaries and blur genres. I'm thrilled to see them on our stage"
—Adrian Berry, Artistic Director of Jacksons Lane
