MAXIMUM

26 - 30 May, 2015

WA Premiere

A DUET BETWEEN A DANCER AND A BODYBUILDER.

GET READY TO SWEAT.

Directed and choreographed by Natalie Abbott, MAXIMUM is a duet between two highly trained performers, a female contemporary dancer and a male bodybuilder. Coming to the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts for 5 nights only over 26 – 30 May, MAXIMUM is a show with muscle – LITERALLY.

MAXIMUM sees both performers, an unlikely duo, attempt a series of physical challenges over one gruelling hour. Continuously moving in sync their every action, however tiny, is repeated and intensified.

Already wowing audiences at the 2014 Next Wave Festival and France’s Festival d’Avignon, the latest work by Abbott, MAXIMUM is a visceral live experience and feat of stamina for the performers and audience alike!
