Beautifully achieved, exhilarating work. ALLISON CROGGON, ABC ARTS

A strange and intriguing meditation into the degradation of bodies through exercise, but also in the ability for the body to keep pushing through. JANE HOWARD, THE GUARDIAN

When a dancer teams up with a bodybuilder, expect a show with real muscle – LITERALLY. Maximum is a duet between a female contemporary dancer and male professional bodybuilder, in which the unlikely duo perform a series of movement tasks and intense acts of physical endurance.

Maximum reveals subtle truths about the nature of human physicality as dance and bodybuilding collide, under sweltering lighting with a throbbing soundtrack. This is a work of extremes and contrasts: big and small, heavy and light, hard and soft, all unravelling to highlight the ability of two diverse bodies to achieve unity through performance (and a lot of sweat).

Maximum debuted as part of Next Wave 2014, and was supported by residencies at Arts House, Lucy Guerin Inc, PACT and Chunky Move.
