Hiding in Plain Sight

Hiding in Plain Sight_editorialEnter an exquisite and multi layered world where the essence of “home” is ephemeral and one’s emotional compass is caressed by the whispers of ancestors.

Hiding in Plain Sight is a new full-length work by acclaimed NSW choreographer Narelle Benjamin (the multi-award winning In Glass). It comprises two solos performed in the same space with separate but overlapping timelines; each performer (extraordinary dancers Kristina Chan and Sara Black) subliminally present in the other’s solo until they overlap centre stage.

Inspired by the evocative photographs of American Francesca Woodman and the philosophical writings of the Romanian Mircea Eliade, Hiding in Plain Sight reverberates with notions of identity, displacement, loss, and mortality.

Performance Space: Score is a festival of exemplary performances and installations that places emphasis on the body in motion: where dance, movement and music come together.
