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.
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"
