Restless is currently in the second stage development of the Touring Company’s new production Second Nature. This new work, directed by Sydney-based artist Dean Walsh, investigates the notions of adaptation, mutation and the inhabitation of our natural environment.
Inspired by the dancer’s continual need to adapt to their external environment, their physical mutations and their constantly enquiring minds, this new work for the Touring Company taps into a gold mine of diverse and instinctual choices made within the performers unique physical ability.
Set to premiere in 2013, Second Nature looks into what we too eagerly deem as foreign without investigating the possibility that perhaps it is ourselves who are foreign, different, other, odd or strange. It is all a matter of circumstance, position, perception and environment.
A studio showing of this work in progress for APAM delegates is scheduled for 1 – 2pm Monday 27 February and 5 – 6pm Thursday 1 March 2012.
