On May 13, catch Lake at Arts Theatre, The Arts Centre Gold Coast.
Bold in its vision and deeply evocative, Lisa Wilson’s Lake literally floods the entire performance area to grapple with our fascination and our fear of water.
Serene. Calm. Haunting. Menacing. This work reflects on the journey of a relationship, evoking its path from sparkling reflection to murky depths; from intense beauty to chilling isolation, to utter wilderness and our deepest sense of our selves within the world. Lake beautifully plays with the light and depth of water, its innate movement and total stillness, to explore the primal undercurrents in human relationships in this visually stunning work.
Set on a stage in flood, Lake merges contemporary dance, video and sound to create an immersive experience with startling visual impact. Bruce McKinven’s stark and broody design and Wilson’s skillful and intimate choreography draw attention to the inherent qualities and contradictions of water.
Lisa’s widely acclaimed independent production, Lake delivers stark captivating theatricality in what is acknowledged as a major new Australian dance theatre work. Exhilarating and evocative, the latest creation from renowned choreographer Lisa Wilson reminds us what it is to be human.
LAKE is visually rich dance theatre, employing elemental effects and a well-developed storyline.
4 star review from THE AGE
The effect of droplets arcing through space, dripping from the dancers and pouring from the rigging is spellbinding. 4 star review from THE AGE
