“To cut straight to the chase, Larissa McGowan’s first full-length piece as an independent choreographer is a resounding success.”
Peter Burdon, The Adelaide Advertiser March 2013
Inspired by the work of Australian artist, Ricky Swallow, Skeleton explores the way different human bodies interact with objects they have previously experienced.
Explosively realised in a jigsaw style reconstruction, bodies and objects are pushed together and pulled apart revealing the influence they have on each other. Meeting surprising and violent ends, bodies and objects collide via a sinister vanishing screen.
From rigor mortis to The Karate Kid, Larissa McGowan’s long-running fascination with skeletal form cuts to the quick with a choreographic haste that has the five dancer’s bones popping, locking and pulsing in place.
