Next Wave
JOY was created through extensive character research, as collaborators Bryant and Stanley visited relatives, aged care facilities, lawn bowls clubs, and bingo halls, all the while maintaining a dedicated studio practice where they refined their detailed and nuanced approach to dance and movement. Steeped in this research and a deep sense of embodiment, their works create a responsive and unconventional relationship to their audiences. Every performance is unique as the two performers respond, alter and adapt their material according to the shifting audience dynamic on a given night.

Created by the winners of the 2008 Best Dance Performance Award at the Melbourne Fringe Festival, JOY is a work that exists both as an imagined world and as a place firmly rooted in the here and now.

A journey through the playful, poignant and absurd .... is JOY.
