A post-apocalyptic world. A black hole into which all humanity and colour has vanished. These are just a few of the associations that arise with the images that enable Australian choreographer Antony Hamilton to completely mesmerize his audience in the impressive performance Black Project 1. In a totally dark universe and with a minimum of movement, two dancers examine how humans differ from machines, and how they can liberate themselves from their surroundings if they are at risk of being swallowed up. By combining visual art, video art, advanced graffiti art and music with extremely precise contemporary dance, award-winning Australian artist Antony Hamilton attempts to create experiences in which he can fully immerse the spectator.

MEETING pairs Antony Hamilton’s compulsive choreography with Alisdair Macindoe’s obsessive machine-making practice. The two performers share space with 64 robotic percussion instruments. A relentless stream of activity unfolds, where the bodies enter states of heightened physical and mental agency, with all actions carried by the meditative pulse of the machine beat. With Hamilton’s unique physical grammar and Macindoe’s bespoke musical instrument making, Meeting composes the body, the space and the robots into a dynamic and riveting choreographic sound installation.   In 2008 Antony formed Antony Hamilton Projects to cre­ate con­tem­po­rary dance work informed by an interest in multi-disciplinary practices. Combining experimental move­ment, visual, sound and video art, his original and unpredictable choreographic voice is a driving catalyst for bold experimentation.
