Lydia McGlinchey (AU)



Rehearsal in preparation for the work’s premiere.

FERAL includes a series of four staged, contrasting landscapes, designed by the dancers themselves. The stage becomes successively a void, a dump, a synthetic desert and a horizon. The performers change from garish, deviant figures to lifeless, hollowed-out surfaces. Lydia McGlinchey developed pieces of textiles used in the scenography, paying attention to texture and different volumes and perspectives.
