TANGERINE HOUR

TANGERINE HOUR

TANGERINE HOUR

CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT //  By NDRNCE

Presented by Metro Arts

Witness this contemporary, physical performance grounded in suburban intimacy, created by emerging performance ensemble, NDRNCE.

Suburbia is set alight and bathed in grapefruit. A town burns in silence, sun slinks into retreat.

Two women lay their bodies beneath a lamppost, taking advantage of fleeting light to spill their hearts to one another, willingly accepting of the pain, gain, love and acceptance true honesty has to offer. Here, they find themselves in the Tangerine Hour. The softest and most powerful time of day, transformation is bound to take place as long as they commit themselves to honesty.

When fear overcomes truth, Mothman finds herself caught in the Tangerine Hour, unable to free herself from the flickering lamplight. Unaware of her trap, she flies in an infinite loop of denial, fixation and warped memories while trying to navigate by the wrong moon. Tangerine Hour is a contemporary, physical performance grounded in soft light and suburban intimacy, created by emerging performance ensemble, NDRNCE.

THE ARTISTS

NDRNCE

NDRNCE is ceremony, sweat, ritual and endurance.

Born from a reverence for mundanity and unearthing of our bodies’ limits, NDRNCE present stories of transformation, failure, reluctant intimacy and willing sacrifice. Our performances are highly physical; merging complex choreographic scores with verbatim and poetic texts to embody the power of often overlooked experiences.

MUSIC AND MOTION: PATTERNS IN THE SOIL

MUSIC AND MOTION: PATTERNS IN THE SOIL

MUSIC AND MOTION: PATTERNS IN THE SOIL

CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT //  By Tess King

Presented by Metro Arts

Come and experience music that is more than live, it’s alive. Surround sound and reactive visuals breathe music to life in this immersive experience.

What is alive in the world around you? Would you be surprised at how much people miss every day? Organicism is the idea that everything, when seen as a whole, is alive. A systemic kaleidoscope that reflects itself over and over yet reveals different aspects with every angle. It is cyclical in this way, much like ourselves. We experience cycles as individuals and societies, making our memories and their ever-changing contexts a fluid, living thing.

Music and Motion: Patterns in the Soil places you in the centre of a flowing audio-visual landscape. As if you were travelling through it, or it through you, the landscape morphs around different reflections of organicism. Perhaps it is a solo cellist, a bird on the precipice of flight, or a surge of electricity as a computer starts. These pieces of life feedback and reflect variations of themselves, creating morphing spirals of patterns.

SLUDGE BANK

SLUDGE BANK

SLUDGE BANK

CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT //  By Chance Collective

Presented by Metro Arts

This camp comedy brings horror genres to meet real-life climate disaster fears in a hyper-stylised performance experience. 

A snarky slime-creature is lurking in the pipes of a newly erected Meanjin (Brisbane) development called Riverbank Towers. This inner-city, upper-class apartment building is rapidly filling with the mysterious, sentient slime that won’t stop until it has consumed every cavoodle in sight. It is up to the residents to put aside their body-corporate bureaucracy, paleo vs vegan diet debates, and Instagram activism to save themselves and everyone else in the face of global disaster.

Featuring an original song by feminist, indie-pop band Bad Sext, Sludge Bank is Chance Collective’s stickiest show yet.
