DRILL Presents

THE STANCE

This monumental dance and sound performance investigates the choreography of bodies in protest. Performed across Australia, Asia and Europe, this latest iteration will interweave the voices of young Tasmanians into movement and sound, creating a powerful and moving experience. An ensemble of Tasmanian dancers will occupy public space and perform to live music transmitted through wireless headsets. 

Inspired by recent protests led by young Australians, The Stance questions what it means to put your body on the
line for something you believe in. Both highly political and physically demanding, this imposing act of endurance
channels the history of public protest and recent acts of
global activism. 

Audiences are invited to view the work at any point during the two-and-a-half-hour duration.
