Double Think

A double bill by Byron Perry

21 - 24 August

GOGGLEBOX

It’s safe to say that our relationship with TV has changed dramatically over the last decade – but aren’t those of us that grew up with it just a little bit uneasy when we read articles saying that TV is dead? Whilst we sit on our couches bathed in the luminescence of our smart phones and tablets, the Television is desperately contorting itself through whatever digital hoops necessary to escape the redundancy that threatens.

Gogglebox is a nostalgic romp for a short attention span, a truly analog experience of the psychological relationship that we all have had and may continue to have with our beloved box.

 

DOUBLE THINK

Byron Perry presents a shifting world of light and shadow with this playful investigation into opposition. Through movement-based conversations, one tall man and one short woman make imperfect sense as they shed some dark on a light subject in a complex world of simple objects. Double Think utilises performer-operated lighting and live set manipulation to create a constantly evolving landscape of relativity.

A mischievous exchange between movement and inertia, light and dark, this is a marvel of motion from an award-winning creator.

Double Think is part of the 2013 Reginald Season.
