The Porcelain Project
On from 14 Apr 2009 till 15 Apr 2009
by Grace Ellen Barkey & Needcompany
Genre(s): Drama

About: The Porcelain Project

A fairytale picture box opens up a sensual fantasy world celebrating an organic and poetic union of dance, theatre, music and visual art. Hundreds of pieces of porcelain objects dangle on strings creating a decadent air which sets the scene for an erotic allegory about power, lust and desire.

Exploring the history of porcelain in relation to its colonial value, the porcelain installation provides distinct boundaries for the choreography. The dancers embody the porous material, enabling them to extend beyond its limitations, igniting imaginations towards the hope that a different world is possible.
