Nerida Matthaei’s contemporary dance installation angel-monster will tour to Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane this March and April.
First conceived in 2015, the work feels timely post #MeToo, with its themes of feminism, violence, consent and empowerment. Presented by Matthaei’s Phluxus2 Dance Collective, the work has been choreographed with a roving audience experience in mind, encouraging viewers to consider multiple viewpoints both figuratively and literally.
“angel-monster is part of a larger, essential conversation around feminism, empowerment, equality, ownership, consent and individuality,” says Matthaei. “Since we began creating the piece there has been a growing public stance that not only informed the work’s continuing development, but also reinforces its relevance in today’s social and cultural landscape. I believe these discussions are not only important for our young people, but vital to us all.”
angel monster plays Sydney March 17, Canberra March 22-23 and Brisbane March 28-29 and April 5-6. For more info head to www.phluxus2.com/angelmonster
