Recital

Date: 31 Jan 2019

Three time APRA Art Music Award-winning percussionist Claire Edwardes and Helpmann Award-winning dancer Richard Cilli unite in the hauntingly hypnotic dance and music work, Recital.

Presented by FORM Dance Projects, a dancer and percussionist come together in a strange, mesmerising double act to demonstrate how movement sounds and how sound moves. Set in the orthodox world of a music and dance recital, the ambiguous relationship between the two performers intensifies; the outcomes are impressive, disturbing and wildly ecstatic.

Recital brings together Edwardes and Cilli’s distinct virtuosic talents in this collaboration directed by acclaimed choreographer Gideon Obarzanek, with composition and sound design by electro-pop composer, Paul Mac.

“For me, our show is about rhythm and form investigated in all its visceral ways, through the lens of dance and percussion,” says Edwardes.

Says Cilli, “this is a fascinating work where the lines between music and dance are blurred. We have worked on moving in phase and in polyrhythms; it takes a lot of focus and listening to move in such a refined way, but the effect is really powerful, and strangely hypnotic.”
