From Lucy Guerin, one of Australia’s most renowned choreographic talents, comes an atmospheric new dance work that embodies human patterns within those of the elements.
Guerin has toured her work extensively in Europe, Asia and North America as well as to most of Australia’s major festivals and venues. She has been commissioned by Chunky Move, Dance Works Rotterdam, Ricochet (UK), Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project and Lyon Opera Ballet among many others.
Her awards include the Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award, a New York Dance and Performance Award (a ‘Bessie’), several Green Room Awards, a Helpmann Award and an Australian Dance Award.
Attend a free pre-show talk at 7:15 p.m. on the Royce terrace prior to each performance for an interactive presentation from UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Studies. Members of the department’s Climate Systems Interactions Group Baird Langenbrunner and Daniel Dauhajre will help us explore, from a scientific perspective, both the poetic manifestations of weather and the literal interactions between humans and the forces of nature.
