A collision of circus and culture that interrogates harmony and conflict to find a Common Dissonance
For thousands of years in Australia, understanding of the world came from Dreamtime stories song lines, and oral histories. In a 21st-century world, the hypocrisies of a culturally diverse past lingers in the wake of a globalised present.
Common Dissonance explores this complexity in a moving contemporary circus work. Two performers, with shared and distinctly individual experiences, create a physical dialogue to seek balance, community, exchange, unity and diversity.
