Kinetic Orchestra8 Feb 7.30pm
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.
