Zoë (A Good Catch And Cluster Arts)

By | Published on Monday 22 August 2022

‘Zoë’ is a fast-paced performance of pure acrobatic anarchy. This unmissable world premiere creates a space for us to question the continuous commodification of life, and encourages the audience to laugh in trepidation at our commercialised culture. The risky, if not dangerous choreography is captivating, with smooth transitions between explosive summersaults and precarious balancing holds. The intricate costumes by Clara Mee Yee Chan characterise the three performers as a fungus, a cloud, and a nest, chosen to represent the symbiotic strength of nature pitted against mankind. Projections, light, and carefully selected sound help convey the story of a world implicated in its objectification. A witty and powerful piece which forces us to seek solidarity in the ever-growing capitalist chaos.

Assembly Roxy, run ended.
