It Starts From Nothing…  

Madness, obsession, the effort to communicate, all set within an endless power struggle as we continuously create and destroy our world.

Fabricate physically explores the tactile environment through movement. The space is designed with objects, light and through the bodies and movements of the dancers. A string web is created and later destroyed, a table enters and all is intersected with clean crisp movement.

A fascination with shared experiences between audience, performer and space is explored. An aesthetic world is created and provides the opportunity to shift how the viewer sees the work with a taster of audience interaction.

Fabricate plays with the audience’s expectations through its changing and unexpected structure, leaving them on the edge of their seat and wanting more.

Fabricate started working together at Unitec in the performing and Screen arts program which was completed by all five dancers/choreographers (Caitlin Davey, Lydia Connolly-Hiatt, Cushla Roughan, Rodney Tyrell and Reece Adams) as well as by the producer (Sarah-Louise Collins). The collective members are all equal in their collaboration and each person brings something different and valuable to the work.

Casper Connolly-Hiatt created the sound score specifically for the work. The music is intriguing in its complex yet simplistic sound and adds an alluring element to the intimate work.
