Major Production 2013



Magnetic is a performance event that looks at the capacity of our bodies to affect and be affected. Inspired by director Elena Lambrinos’ research in dance, body pedagogy and affect theory, the show aims to leave audiences considering the different ways that bodies can mean and to highlight the body as an event, as a happening. How is consciousness shaped by the push and pull of different forces. What draws us in? What repels us? What forces exert on us and forge us into the beings we are today?

Director and Producer: Elena Lambrinos


“Pulsing, organic soundtracks and cool blue and harsh red lights made for a very pleasurable technical experience. Transitions were taut. The display complemented the dancers’ exaggerated movement and precise choreography.”
