The premiere of VOiiiD Collectives' work LAMINA choreographed by Jade Brider.
LAMINA is an evening of heart pounding contemporary dance and physical theatre. This independently produced work is brought to you by Meanjin’s most exciting collective of misfits and mischief makers; the VOiiiD Collective.
Join us as we peel back different masks, shedding layers of false pretence and destroying anything with designs on making female-gendered bodies more palatable. Conceptualised and choreographed by Jade Brider, LAMINA personifies the individual struggle against a system that perpetuates damaging ideals.
Not afraid of venturing into the grotesque, the hybrid of absurd eisteddfod wives meeting high art clashing with pop culture creates an unforgettable visual feast for a performance not to be missed.
VOiiiD Collective acknowledges that we make work on the unceeded lands of the Jagera and Turrbal people. We pay our respect to those custodians who have maintained connection to country and shared stories through song and dance since the very first sunrise. To this day, no treaty has been signed. It always was and always will be aboriginal land.
