105: INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THE CREATIVELY MALADJUSTED
[July 2018, Santarcangelo Festival, Italy]
CREATION/TEXT/PERFORMANCE: Nana Biluš Abaffy
PERFORMANCE: Milo Love + Geoffrey Watson
105 is a dance for three in one hundred and something movements. It is about the worship of a shoulder, and the disappearance and then reappearance of that shoulder. And then that wrist. It is about how similar the dead look to the sleeping. And about crime scene dioramas and biblical triptychs coming in and out of focus. In this experimental choreographic work, Zagreb born Melbourne based artist Nana Biluš Abaffy creates an embodied mental universe in which the movement and collapse of psychic desire is traced between three dancers, an audience, and an almost touchable vision.
Producer: Roslyn Helper/Underbelly Arts
Duration 80 minutes
Commissioned by Santarcangelo Festival. An iteration of this work was originally commissioned by Underbelly Arts Lab and Festival.
