Phillip Adams, one of Australia’s most provocative and inventive choreographers, returns to our Uncaged series with his masterwork, Amplification. Using the car accident as a metaphor for mental/physical disassociation, 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 scientific fascination and transfixing focus on the body in chaos.
