Title of work

Sam in a Pram

Synopsis

Sam remembers wild childhood adventures with his uncles and aunts 'riding roughshod around the corners of the sky'. Sam in a Pram is a light-hearted sequel to What To Name Your Baby featuring six exuberant dancers whipping around the cavernously industrial Inveresk Railyards in Tasmania. The rough and tumble movement vocabulary references Mad Max films and Keystone Cops comedy and then stretches these references into highly articulate and astoundingly fast-paced, fully extended, electrically crackling dancing.
