Robot Wars meets contemporary dance in this Australian duo
Two men stand in a circle of small boxes. As their arms slowly oscillate, each action is defined by a tiny pop as the boxes begin to move. They are 64 robotic percussion instruments, each tapping a pencil, creating an insistent, mesmerising range of sounds. A stream of activity unfolds, with all actions carried by the meditative pulse of the machine beat. Part of the thriving Melbourne dance scene, with Hamilton’s unique physical grammar and Macindoe’s bespoke musical instrument making, Meeting fuses bodies, space and the robots into a dynamic and riveting choreographic sound installation. Recommended for ages 13 and over. Running time: 50 minutes. The venue is not wheelchair accessible: for more information please call 0207 223 2223.
"Two cool kids of the Melbourne dance scene have teamed up to create something unique."
