Heroes, icons, imagined worlds and censored dreams. We relentlessly create, monitor and edit our own image in response to an abundance of references and influences. In a hyperconscious world, how do we define ourselves?
L U C I D is an intimate work for two performers, multiple cameras and a screen, which interrogates how we imagine and reconstruct our identities.
A work by Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk, L U C I D sees performers Lauren Langlois and Stephen Phillips travel to places where they can be all that they desire, fear or censor. Shapeshifting in and out of other people’s skins, they confront themselves in reflections of others.
L U C I D reveals the many faces we present to the world; a culmination of the carefully crafted or those released by fearless abandon.
“Langlois and Phillips are excellent, traversing the demands of movement, text and physical performance in a work that offers beautiful moments “ The Age
“Anouk van Dijk’s latest and most intriguing work for the Company. [...] Langlois and Phillips navigate their frenetic material with sublime intensity“ The Australian
“L U C I D is a prime example of what can happen when a dream team of technicians and performers take high-end video systems and lay them within the landscape of a duet“ The Herald Sun
