Double Think

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Double Think is a double-bill of two works by the award-winning Australian choreographer and performer Byron Perry

Double Think
Byron Perry presents a shifting world of light and shadow in Double Think, with this playful investigation into opposition. Through movement-based conversations, one tall man and one short woman make imperfect sense as they shed some dark on a light subject in a complex world of simple objects. Double Think utilises performer-operated lighting and live set manipulation to create a constantly evolving landscape of relativity. A mischievous exchange between movement and inertia, light and dark, this is a marvel of motion from an award-winning creator.

Gogglebox
It’s safe to say our relationship with TV has changed dramatically over the last decade — but aren’t those of us that grew up with it just a little bit uneasy when we read articles saying TV is dead? While we sit on our couches bathed in the luminescence of our smart phones and tablets, the television is desperately contorting itself through whatever digital hoops necessary to escape the redundancy that threatens. Gogglebox is a nostalgic romp for a short attention span; a truly analogue experience of the psychological relationship we have all had and may continue to have with our beloved box.

This tour is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

Reviews

A tightly realised piece of dance/theatre. It's slick, engaging and arguably Perry's best work yet.

Herald Sun

Perry tinkers with time and space to remind us of the indispensible nature of humanity.
