Presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy
Five performers negotiate communicating with each other and the audience whilst attending to the complex rhythmic world in which they operate.
Oscillating between the monotonous and the dramatic, between the meaningful and the meaningless, RHYTHMIC FICTIONS reorganises language and movement into a playful choreography that exposes the fragility and multiplicity of communication and interpretation.
‘[McKenna’s] work combines rigour and conceptual seriousness with a sense of humour and an eye for theatrical detail.’ – Andrew Fuhrmann, Witness Performance
Approximate running time: 60mins
