Bonemap (Russell Milledge and Rebecca Youdell) and Clocked Out (Erik Griswold
and Vanessa Tomlinson) in an Innovate Residency
Bonemap and Clocked Out come together to develop a new work entitled “Time Crystals.” The project takes as its starting point a recent discovery in physics - of strange, perpetually moving particles called time crystals, or space-time crystals.
Using prepared piano, percussion, movement, mirrors, video and media, Clocked
Out and Bonemap will explore complex repeating patterns, circularity, and crystalline
shapes to create an immersive and engaging live performance event.
Picture dancer Rebecca Youdell performing a complex sequence of angles, her
image refracted through an array of mirrors and projections (created by Russell
Milledge) – a lifesized, moving “kaleidoscope.”
Short rhythmic motifs gradually grow and contract, passing from percussion (Vanessa Tomlinson) to piano (Erik Griswold) and back. Delicate, echoing textures, drifting in and out synch with dance and reflection, constantly shifting.
60 minutes (no interval)

THE FARM (choreographers. Gavin Webber and Grayson Millwood):
Two blokes in an office. One older, one younger, each body pushed to its limits in
this hilarious and ultimately tender piece of physical theatre. These men challenge
each other in a series of comical one-upmanships that build to a moment of impact
where everything is suspended, the flash of bared teeth, the mutual reliance on the
fight, the desperation and loneliness of success.
Cock Fight is a poetic look at the power play that occurs between men and the frailty of the body. It is evocative of age and passing time and questions our culture’s desperate desire for achievement. Without each other these two performers have nothing left to fight for.
At the heart of Cock Fight is a very real relationship between Josh and Gav who have
been working together for many years. Their humour, trust and understanding allows
them to take extreme physical risks that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
