“A Faint Existence captures one of Australia’s most beguiling contemporary dancers at the peak of her abilities as a performer and the point of recognition of her formidable creative capacities” – Kate Champion


 

The stunning full-length solo debut from acclaimed Australian dancer-choreographer Kristina Chan, A Faint Existence is a powerful physical meditation on impermanence, fragility and mortality in the age of climate change. Chan’s performance explores our complex connection to the environment, our desire to make a change and the feelings of helplessness that derail our best intentions.

Kristina Chan is one of Australia’s foremost dance artists—a dancer of great precision, intuition and exceptional physical virtuosity. Acclaimed composer James Brown has created a live electronic score that connects to the intricacies of Chan’s choreography in a shifting environment created by Clare Britton.

 

Access:
* Tactile tour starts at 8pm. This presentation will explore both tactile and kinaesthetic elements of the work, as well as providing patrons with an opportunity for active participation with artist Kristina Chan. This tour will be followed by an audio described performance at 9pm

** Audio Description is available for this performance. Please let us know in advance and we will make sure to reserve a headset for you. Written pre-show notes will also be available from our website prior to the performance.
