Commissioned and produced by FORM Dance Projects and created by three world-renowned Australian artists and long-time collaborators, with the next generation of dance makers, this Sydney Festival world premiere will encompass a vast lexicon of human experience and human movement: the dark and challenging; the ugly and beautiful; the humorous and joyful.
