NEON will be a free-roaming experience, with audiences given the choice of how to watch and listen to each of the three works, which are performed simultaneously on loop. Featuring musical scores created by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and a riotous design of light and colour, this work will be a truly unique experience for audiences.
CARBON • KRYPTON • LITHIUM
NEON began by focusing on three of the many core building blocks of the Universe; the chemical elements. Each choreographer chose one element and used this is a launching pad for their own choreographic investigation during a five-month creative development in 2018. They drew inspiration from the elements’ chemical makeup, physical forms and practical uses, but also expanded on this to explore abstract concepts and metaphors that have relevance to both the participants and audiences.
