FORM Dance Projects and Riverside Theatres present
Dance Bites 2021
“Looking closely at YOU – NARCIFIXION – MUST SEE!”
“truly manages to make contemporary dance interesting and accessible.” Dance Australia (Supermodern by Anton, Dance Bites 2012)
Led by powerful performers Anton and Brianna Kell, Narcifixion is a dark and humorous work about narcissism. This pertinent, highly detailed and expansive contemporary dance duet examines identity in the digital age. Inspired by narcissistic behaviour epidemically prevalent across the screen space, Narcifixion explores physical characters, who are in a constant state of exhibiting and observing themselves. Tapped, scanned and swiped, this enticingly strange world is jam packed with riotous dance, physical characters and over the top theatricality.
Set in tune to the deep synth vibes of Jai Pyne and illuminated by Steve Hendy, the dance of Narcifixion is dense, superficial, super serious and profoundly absurd.
