An exploration of the intricate relationship between movement and music, Scimm. Dance Company presents Mechorstra at The MC Showroom from 8 – 11 February, as part of the 2024 Midsumma Festival.
Immerse yourself in the spellbinding world of Mechorstra – a ground-breaking contemporary dance performance choreographed by Artistic Directors Scott Pokorny and Tim Barnes in collaboration with the dancers.
The dancers skilfully emulate an orchestra that strives for perfection, yet they descend into chaos. This audacious performance pushes the boundaries of contemporary dance, blending elements of ballet, circus and physical theatre to create a unique and unforgettable cultural experience.
Beyond its stunning choreography and artistic execution, Mechorstra holds a deeper resonance. The performance is also crafted around the personal queer stories of Scimm. Dance Company’s queer-identifying performers.
It delves into themes of identity, love, relationships and the stigmas faced both within and outside the LGBTQIA+ community. Each dance sequence is a narrative, celebrating the diversity and richness of queer experiences.
Mechorstra is more than a contemporary dance performance; it’s an emotive journey, a celebration of individuality and a bold statement against societal norms.
Join Scimm. Dance Company for this extraordinary display of artistry and expression, and discover a performance that resonates with the hearts and minds of all who witness it. This innovative and visually striking production is set to be a highlight of the 2024 Midsumma Festival.
