Amplification: violence, power, vulnerability.

‘A web of cables, a press conference of microphones and a cacophony of loop systems are the centrepiece of order and chaos. Sequences of distortion and manipulation accumulate and dissolve, exploring the power, violence and vulnerability in amplification.’

Working in collaboration, sound designer and composer Anna Whitaker, dancer and choreographer Jenni Large and dancer, choreographer and dramaturg Ashleigh Musk explore the connection between sound and dance.

Chaos in Concert is action and consequence, a reverberative questioning of the repercussions of our behaviour. We question the scale of our impact – from our intimate relationships, our broader communities and our environment. Crucially confronting our human footprint, as we bear witness to social and environmental emergencies we ask – “how can we maintain progression without harm?”
