The Stain present... The Divide 14-17 April 2016 | Thurs - Sat 8pm | Sun 7pm Auslan Interpreted Shows 15 & 16 April 8pm
In the wake of their sold out 2014/15 La Mama shows, A Piece For An Odd Place and The Want, The Stain announce their much anticipate new work, The Divide. Set in an underground world marred by the spoils of life the show explores the beauty and pain in existence as it fragments through time. The shadow and form these fragments cast reunite to form a different kind of whole.
Subtly moving and tenderly still, The Divide captures the contours of a moment as it moves through space unhindered by the barriers that would normally hold it in place. Live music and a soundscape cast the ultimate soundtrack. Refined costumery and set design create the tone. With a performance artist, two dancers, two maidens and an acrobatic queen, The Divide delivers another interesting take on the world.
