Be Your Self - T1103471691

What makes you ‘you’? Garry Stewart‘s latest work for Australian Dance Theatre, Be Your Self, reveals the precarious stability of the concept of self as the work steps through the conventions we use to convince ourselves of a singular ‘I’. Be Your Self is informed by the idea that there is an enormous degree of unconscious ‘editing’ of experiences and incoming stimulii that is required in constructing a smoothly unfolding, chronologically sequenced perception of our reality and consistent idea of self. Stewart situates the body at the centre of his inquiry. Despite our civilising cultural inscriptions the body is a force to be reckoned with. In Be Your Self the ADT dancers are transformed into erupting, powerful, creative entities projecting a mountain of startling physical images and impresssions set to a wildly unpredictable, cartoonish, electronic score.
