“A raw and powerful work, which at times is confronting to the point of discomfort. Amplification is not for the faint-hearted or the prudish.”
– Sunday Herald Sun
Phillip Adams, one of Australia’s most provocative and inventive choreographers, returns to our Uncaged series with his masterwork, Amplification. This compelling dance-theater piece examines the thresholds of the human body’s response to sound, light, and physical impact. Skidding, sliding and crashing into a world of body bags, pain, healing, reality, and unreality, Amplification deconstructs and reconstructs the site of impact with a transfixing focus on the body in chaos. FOR MATURE AUDIENCES. CONTAINS NUDITY.
