Stompin Youth Dance Company - Mirror Mirror
Thu 25 Apr 2019 12:41 am to 12:41 am
Mirror Mirror, Stompin’s next site-specific performance, will take place in an empty warehouse space in South Launceston with purpose-built shifting mirrors to become the backdrop for the show. Fake and real become almost completely imperceptible as 15 young Tasmanians assemble and reassemble the set, designed to play with distorted or curated realities, digital fragments and mimicry. The work allows performer and audience alike to confront and examine themselves close up. Peering into the looking glass to find what's beyond our reflection. The Stomper’s themselves are the catalyst for this work, wanting to investigate the current obsession and with social media, their love-hate relationship with selfie-culture and their developing sense of identity in the 2-demensional world. Mirror Mirror will be led by internationally recognised dance artist James Bachelor in collaboration with Stompin’s Artistic Director Caitlin Comerford.
Wednesday 18th – Sunday 22nd April, 7:30pm shows & 2:00pm Weekend Matinees. Tickets on sale at www.stompin.net
