Esperance Civic Centre proudly presents IN THE ZONE. Proudly supported by Lotterywest.
Hip-hop dance meets gaming technology in this groundbreaking new work by Shaun Parker & Company.
Conceived by award-winning choreographer Shaun Parker and digital sound designer Alon Ilsar, IN THE ZONE is not only fun and exciting dance theatre, but it also empowers young audiences to consider themes such as technology, man-made global warming, personal choice and resilience.
IN THE ZONE features captivating new technology called AirSticks, developed by Alon Ilsar, whichcreate live sound through movement and features Western Sydney hip-hop artist Libby Montilla and choreography by award-winning director Shaun Parker.
With AirSticks technology in the hands of Libby Montilla, the audience enters the world of a video game through the dance forms of locking, popping, waving and body-ticking, inspired by the stunning soundscape which includes crunchy electronica, atmospheric strings, funky drum loops and the sounds of birds, ocean waves and nature - all intrinsically linked to Libby’s outstanding body animation and storytelling in a bravura solo performance.
IN THE ZONE takes gaming and escapism as a point of inspiration and celebrates the spectacular worlds that we can explore with technology today. It also examines the potential for loss of control through gaming, encouraging a renewed appreciation for nature. IN THE ZONE provides young audiences (and the young at heart) with the insight that they are much more in control of their own emotional responses than they think they are. A perfect show for the entire family, with adults enjoying the show just as much as their children!
