The emerging devised performance company Te Ilum joins forces with up-and-coming dance theatre artist Chloe Kernaghan to bring a brand new work:
"at Sixes & Sevens"
Sixes and Sevens- an idiom to describe a state of confusion or disarray.
The creation of “at Sixes & Sevens” started with the concept of self-realization. Using the archetype of a 1950s housewife, just left by her husband, Ms. Kernaghan and her dance ensemble deconstruct the process in which each of us continue to define and redefine ourselves: Asking the question, do we really shape ourselves or does the world do it for us. As realities and worlds start to shift, the character, and audience loose track of what is real and what is not. In this murky existence is where raw impulsive movement will start to explore the real composition of this woman--who she really is, how to identify her, and what is she in the world when her reason to live leaves her...
About the Company: Te Ilum
Te Ilum develops provocatively experiential theatre using technologic spectacle, seamless design, and compelling dramaturgy.
We pour the theatrical into alternative artistic frameworks, disrupting the accepted formulae of performance: a concert as theatre, a painting as choreography, a play as installation art.
Te Ilum cultivates new worlds that can be found only in imagination, endeavoring to expose and to explore the natural humanity within the unnatural landscapes the mind itself creates.
