Dancers in 'A Posto'

This event has finished

Don’t be fooled by the apparently simplistic movements executed by the three dancers at the beginning of A Posto. They lay on the ground, stand up to walk around, turn back to the floor to crawl, then begin to scratch at themselves and look around desperately confused – and it's at that moment that the audience's imagination is jolted into attempting to uncover the mystery of what the dancers are portraying in this work by Italian choreographer Ambra Senatore.

At first, the lights flicker on and off a number of times, creating an interesting – if somewhat disconcerting – visual design of pastel shades across the stage. Six minutes pass until the soundtrack finally begins, accompanying the dancers and filling the emptiness previously occupied only by the moving bodies.

The choreography’s dynamic changes again and the action becomes more complex, stopping again only momentarily, when the breathing of the dancers becomes audible. As the piece unfolds, surprising and captivating details coalesce to make Senatore's vision a rare theatre experience.
