Duration 60 min

With “An Evening-­length Performance”, Australian choreographer James Batchelor reimagines the baroque ballroom as a place for queer encounters and expression. A new kind of social dance emerges that invites curiosity about the event space and its inherent theatricality. Sensitive, delicate and poised, the performers embody a shared vocabulary with echoes of their own personal movement histories. As doors open and layers are removed, the formality of the space shifts to allow moments of subtlety and intimacy.
