*WINNER of the Helpmann Award for Best Choreography in a Dance or Physical Theatre Work, 2014*
Helpmann Award Nominee – Best Choreography
Green Room Award Nominee – Best Visual Design
The highly charged and evocative sound and smell of a struck match provide the ignition point for A Small Prometheus, a work about the consequences of small actions and the fragility of physical systems.
Two of Australia’s most exciting and uncompromising artists, Stephanie Lake and Robin Fox, seamlessly intermesh choreography, sound and objects to create rich tension in a work that swings deftly between chaotic, free-form experiments and mechanically intricate moments. A Small Prometheus creates a strange and enthralling world of darkness, light and the spark that mediates the two.
