Abandoned Dances

MADE (Mature Artists Dance Ensemble) Hobart

Inspired by the emotionally charged poetry and unapologetic, raw ferocity of experimental film maker, Maya Deren, Abandoned Dances unravels the insular reality of a woman caught in a perpetual cycle of her own actions.

Driven by music from venerated artists such as John Zorn and Germaine Tailleferre, with musicians Michael Fortescue and Fiona Stewart, the MADE dancers embark on a kinetic anthem of reckless personal abandon. Plunging towards the ragged edge of movement and emotional stamina Abandoned Dances explores how memory influences and manages our slippery, elastic existence.
