The mystery of reflection, and our relationship to it, has inspired as often as it has confounded the human imagination: from the myth of Narcissus to those, like Alice, who stepped through the polished surface to enter a world reversed. When we gaze into the mirror, do we merely stare at the mute image of our body?
Or at something else - someone else?
Two of Australia's finest contemporary dancers, Paul White and Kristina Chan, have united with acclaimed choreographer Narelle Benjamin, to discover what it is when reason is confounded, when one person ends and another begins - what it is to be In Glass.
Haunting shapes and hovering spectres overlap and intersect in Benjamin's kaleidoscopic choreography. In exquisitely realised images, dances are doubled or made incorporeal; motion travels from one form to another.
Following a sold-out season for Sydney Opera House, Malthouse Theatre is delighted to be presenting In Glass as part of our Dance Massive program.
