At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Fuse

Fuse

Love can give you the chance to change almost any facet of yourself in order to fit the needs of the object of your desire. But if your love is reciprocal, shouldn’t they also change for you? Will this create positive perpetual motion, or a destructive vicious circle? Can those within the relationship tell which of these paths they are on?

Produced by STRUT Dance, Fuse is a full-length dance work based on the interrelationship between two people; through the cycle from strangers, to friends, towards cohorts, through dependents and on to parasites. Fuse is a portrait of the sometimes explosive consequences of the manipulation of self.

Director Jonathon Buckels on the show: “The effects of human interaction fascinate me. Not only how we relate to other people, yet more how we relate to ourselves before, during and after interaction. There are masks we are forced to wear and vows to ourselves that we are coerced to bend each time we redefine ourselves due to the presence of other people.”

Don’t miss this fascinating and engaging work.
