Replica is a dynamic new dance work by Stephanie Lake Company which brings together a creative team of leading Australian artists and an international cast including Christina Chan (Singapore) and Aymeric Bichon (France).
Two figures emerge from the darkness and enter a heart-pounding, visceral world of split-second timing and melting fluidity. They are intricately tangled.
Replica is about symbiosis and the types of symbiotic relationships found in nature - including human nature. Mutualistic symbiosis sees both organisms benefit from the relationship; parasitic symbiosis sees one creature benefit while the other suffers. There is friction, aggression, tenderness and complicity.
With whip-smart unison alongside wild, animalistic choreography, Replica is the non-narrative story of two people travelling a winding road together. In this study of similarity and difference, we witness the fascinating intersection of two people - two dancers who need each other to create the work but also rail against their intimate interdependence.
Replica features collaboration with an internationally regarded team of artists including Robin Fox (music), Bosco Shaw (lighting) and Paula Levis (costume).
“Intimacy and violence are tightly woven in this deeply affecting dance piece.”Arts Hub (on Double Blind)
“Electric, white-hot and of universal appeal. Incredible.” Toorak Times (on Pile of Bones)
