Presented by Australian Dance Party in conjunction with You Are Here Festival, Autonomous reflects on our relationships with technological invention, the urban landscape and connection, as we move, transition, turn and weave through our days in motorised car choreographies. With an interest in re-framing who and what can perform, Autonomous positions the car as the dancer.
Set in a CBD carpark – spaces which invade the lives of Canberrans – Autonomous will challenge the valued freedom of the car versus its impact. Issues of social disconnect, laziness, disposability and carbonisation of our environment fog up the windows.
Expect an immersive, revved up dance weaving in and around the anatomy of the car.
Performers: Olivia Fyfe, Jack Riley, Alana Stenning and Alison Plevey
