A gripping new dance work exploring the physical effect of legal systems on the body, from lawyer-turned-choreographer Rhys Ryan. In a tightly controlled arena, driven by the pulse of a slowly accelerating metronome, three performers weave movement with metaphor to reveal the invisible laws that shape our actions.
Timelier than ever, ‘Bodylex’ confronts audiences with a stark and provocative view of the systems we occupy and the choices we make within them.
Presented as part of Adelaide Fringe 2022.
