Livid Land 2003

dancers; Liz Lea and Patrick Harding Irmer

A subtle, powerful work inspired by the inner and outer landscapes of the body within the Australian landscape. Four dancers meet, collide and merge in a work of contrasts.

Enhanced by experiences of Australian landscapes the work is inspired by paintings, poems, writings, the landscapes of the body and the effects of nature.

Australia’s vast landscapes have developed us as a nation and in particular created a nation of very physical dancers. We have a huge country, wide spaces, open skies,  spending most of our lives outdoors. Livid Land is a work created mainly outdoors which retains the scope of human relations,
