PVC stretches. A lot. And it's the only thing keeping me from falling to the ground. Will the strands of plastic hold my weight? Do I trust them to? How much torture can they bear before they snap?
PVC plastic tubing is a prop, partner and aerial apparatus in this multidisciplinary work, aiming to highlight the power in gentleness and what are usually perceived to be feminine movement qualities.
Dominic de Grande is the composer of the piece "Overlapse", which features in the performance.
Duration: 50 mins
Age Guidance: suitable for all
"Lam is a capable clown, lolloping around the stage in bright-green gum boots... Striking images of her body entangled in plastic tubing"
"Hazel moves with the clean, elegant lines of a ballerina. Watery sounds in the pre-recorded soundtrack bubble into a mermaid fantasy"
"A graceful aerial ballet. Lam’s agility amalgamates art-forms to illuminate the strength of the tender"
