Pile of Bones World Premiere season, August 15 – 19, 2017 /// ARTS HOUSE, Melbourne. Tickets HERE.

Pile Of Bones is Stephanie Lake Company’s anticipated new dance work. From crystal cut precision to wild abandon, Pile Of Bones is a gripping, visceral and eccentric choreographic and audio-visual exploration of nurture, violence and the intricacies of our closest relationships.

Featuring four remarkable dancers, Samantha Hines, Jack Ziesing, Harrison Ritchie-Jones and Marlo Benjamin, Pile of Bones examines love, suppression, mutation and the uprising of inner demons and angels. Bodies are encrusted with fluttering armour and caught in sticky webs.

In this new work, Lake’s trademark gutsy physicality and kooky poetics are teamed once again with an original composition by renowned artist Robin Fox and design team Harriet Oxley (costume) and Matthew Adey (lighting) mapping with an intimate and ferocious intensity our instinctive quest for meaning, and the absurd futility of that search.

Pile Of Bones will premiere at Arts House, Melbourne, August 15-19 2017. TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE
