Projector/Conjector

Projector/Conjector

5th March 2014


Inspired by Swan Lake and Star Wars, Projector/Conjector playfully references dance and mechanics of theatre. With a video projector and TV attached to their heads, two creatures called Projector and Conjector meet and fall in love, dancing through screens.

"This work (a duet) is not at all 'just' a dance piece. Although the actual dance content is minimal at best, dance is referenced in a beautifully techno-cuckoo way. It's a piece about outer space and and inner desires, tragic love and a literally bloody lake of swans, It's also charmingly dead-pan, witty and inventive.”
Donald Hutera (dance writer for The Times)

"Projector/Conjector is a love story too, but not like any other... a bonkers story emerges ... as well as being absurdly hilarious, it's also very sweet. One of the most imaginative things you'll see this season. ”
Lyndsey Winship (dance editor for Time Out)
