This is a magnificent, special artwork. It expresses the drama of a public space in which for over a century many souls have taken a stance in the cause of freedom.” – Matt Foley


 

The Stance is a monumental live performance that places a mass of bodies in protest at the centre of a large-scale intervention in the Carriageworks public space. Both highly political and physically demanding, The Stance is an imposing act of endurance that channels the history of public protest and recent acts of global action, activism and intervention.

As the ensemble of nine dancers perform to a remarkable live score, a sprawling dance work transforms into an intimate viewing experience, which is transmitted to audiences through wireless headsets. Choreographed by acclaimed Brisbane artist Liesel Zink, The Stance invites audiences to consider the politics and physical commitment that fuel mass protest, questioning what it means to put yourself on the line for something you believe in.
