Muscle Memory: Reflex
Looking back on a successful dance and music collaboration at Brisbane Powerhouse.
Once again Collusion nailed the brief and presented a daring and unmissable evening of contemporary ballet and live string music in 'Muscle Memory:Reflex' during Restrung Festival at the Brisbane Powerhouse in August.
Our "formidable string quartet" had Celine Chong from Cut Common raving! "From the first menacing trills of Vasks’ string quartet, listeners seemed immediately drawn in. And, equally convincing, the Kats-Chernin pieces were played with vibrancy and an impressive rhythmic verve."
Twenty pre-professional dancers also joined Collusion onstage, giving a stirring account of Resident Choreographer Gareth Belling's muscular choreography in two recently created works; Contact Point and Before. both created in 2016 for WAAPA and QUT Dance, respectively.
Collusion can't wait to return to the stage in 2018 in another series of exciting live music and dance creations.
