a dance collaboration for Dances for a Small Stage (2017)
Like the movement, the music for Orange successively explores each perceptive sense through sound. Relishing in the effervescent citrus flavours and scents, taste and smell give way to the experience of hearing, conjured through building rhythms out of the natural rebound of oranges. A quirky take on the vibrant sight and rich colour of the fruit follows, moving through to the porous and strewn textures of touch, before a final climax which integrates the full sensory experience together.
Orange was developed for Dances for a Small Stage at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2017, in collaboration with choreographer Lisa Lonero Allen, and dancers Ruby Dolman and Courteney Cox.
