Bakehouse Theatre


Directed By: Rhys Ryan

A gripping new dance work exploring the physical effect of legal systems on the body, from lawyer-turned-choreographer Rhys Ryan. In a tightly controlled arena, driven by the pulse of a slowly accelerating metronome, three performers weave movement with metaphor to reveal the invisible laws that shape our actions.

Laws are designed to regulate behaviour. How a body responds to these pressures – either deliberately or unconsciously – is a complex phenomenon. We must constantly navigate the tension between external rules and our innermost desires. Do we resist, conform or adapt? The answer is both choreographic and political.

Timelier than ever, ‘Bodylex’ confronts audiences with a stark and provocative view of the systems we occupy and the choices we make within them.

Presented as part of Adelaide Fringe 2022.
