Orbits 2015

Choreography and Direction: Amber Funk Barton
Dancers: Amber Funk Barton, Alexa Mardon, Maiko Miyauchi
Duration: 17 minutes


Orbits is a collection of dances serving as work-in-progress performance
experiments that act as movement research towards the company’s next creation
of an interstellar world. The work draws inspiration from universal space, the
chemical reactions and elements in our universe that are also in our bodies, and the
curious explorer that naturally resides in human beings as a species. Bodies dissolve,
revolve, expand and rebuild to create an entertaining and eclectic collection of ideas
and images, both choreographed and improvised.

Dance Festival, Chris Barton.
