Double bill, very different works

Scrambled Legs and Corrupt Productions have teamed up in a double-bill of contemporary dance.

Hover and Locked made their Dunedin premieres in the Otago Festival of the Arts last night.

"They're very different works. Locked is about co-dependency," choreographer Julia Milsom said yesterday.

"It uses a lot of balance in the work, which is a metaphor for co-dependency. It's quite a dangerous piece. It's risky and the audience can sense that risk, which is what makes it exciting," she says.

"Hover is very much about exploring how we can hover as dancers and we use a lot of lights to create that illusion. It's a much more abstract and physical work."

The two works by the Christchurch dance companies are each about 30 minutes long, with an interval in between.

"It's a short, but energetic, performance of contemporary dance."

Milsom choreographed Locked, while Hover was designed by Fleur de Thier.

The dancers are Erica Viedma, Julia Sadler, Paul Young and Julia Milsom.

The final performance of Hover/Locked is on at 8 tonight in the Kavanagh College auditorium.
