Rebecca Jensen and Sarah Aiken will remount their NWF14 dance work OVERWORLD, taking on neo-paganism, yoga, music videos and death metal to examine how we access information online and filter it back into the world.
Musician Matthias Schack-Arnott will also remount his incredible NWF14 sculpture work Fluvial, a gigantic instrument-installation, a horizon of quivering metals, glass and stone.
That ladies of POST (NWF 2006, 2008) take on Oedipus Schmoedipus, a bloody megamix of death scenes from popular theatre in a joyful, dark, silly and smart examination of the great unknown.
Antony Hamilton (NWF 2008) and Alisdair Macindoe (NWF 2010) share their performance space with 64 robotic percussion instruments for MEETING, a choreographic study of the body and mind in motion.
And finally, Rennie McDougall (NWF 2012) and Luke George (NWF 2004, 2008) join Phillip Adam’s Ballet Lab for Kindgom, an exploration of queerness, choreography and language.
