Emerging performance collective Big Muscles Sad Heart will bring to the stage Olympia Olympia!, a look into the dark, competitive heart of professional sport. The work examines the absurdity of ordinary bodies imitating god-like athletes and features never-before-seen contests, rituals and synchronised choreography more precise than Roger Federer’s Rolex.
Following Olympia Olympia! comes the premiere of Arena from award-winning choreographer Martin del Amo featuring performance powerhouse Anton.
In Arena, a flamboyant gossip, a laconic cleaner and a highly-strung director, battle it out in a series of interlinking stories. Combining idiosyncratic movement and intimate storytelling, Arena conjures a diverse cast of oddball characters and draws them into a frenzied world of make-believe.
PACT’s Generations program features work by an early career artist presented alongside a work by an established artist. Generations encourages greater dialogue between generations of artists and contextualises work by early career artists within a broader framework.
