Adrenalin saturates dance mix
Review by Raewyn Whyte 15th Mar 2013
The highlight of Atamira Dance Company’s annual choreographic development season, HOU for 2013 is an adrenalin-saturated, crowd-pleasing dance by choreographer Nancy Wijohn which looks destined to become much-performed.
Running just over 14 minutes, and maintaining an aerobically punishing pace, Paarua Double Contact investigates moments of sporting competition and martial combat when split-second, instinctive decisions occur – and in particular those moments when the desire to win eclipses conscious thought.
Seven dancers in gym gear present a rolling series of situations in which their physical prowess is very much to the fore, driven along by music tracks such as Medication (Fearless Nightcrawler Mix), a mashed-up Hungarian Dance, and Jam the Box 69.
