Review 2013: Hiro


“Out of No Thing, the concluding work choreographed by Rochelle Carmichael was strong, powerful and dramatic. The cast wore simple yet elegant black costumes .Choreographically at times there were laser sharp movements, a frieze like line at one point , some writhing ,sculptural tableaux and some most unusual lifts. Mini duets and trios featured rolling floorwork. Did I detect a possible Bonachela influence combined with Butoh ? One to watch out for.” (Review: Lynne Lancaster Sydney Arts Guide. Feb 2014)

Original performers: Kathleen Lott, Harrison Hall, Robert Brassington, Sydney Green (Jayde Macdonough), and Paul Hickman.


Out Of No Thing

“Embracing No thing. Embracing obscurity. I was always pulled back for more. It’s all or nothing. It was no thing. I was no thing.”
