Pile of Bones is Stephanie Lake Company’s latest work in development. World Premiere, Melbourne, August 2017. Stay tuned for announcement!

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.

Housed in a textured environment, dancers Samantha Hines, Jack Ziesing, Harrison Ritchie-Jones and Marlo Benjamin negotiate materials that articulate the complex sounds of their moving feet, encrust their bodies like armour and light only exposed skin. 

Here, objects are divorced from their mundane purpose and given new life as symbols.

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 mapping with an intimate and ferocious intensity our instinctive quest for meaning, and the absurd futility of that search.

Pile Of Bones will premiere in Melbourne in August 2017.
