Artist in Residence: Callous Affection Dance

6 May - 3 July 2019

The Callous Affection Dance residency at ONCA Barge will be part of an R & D process leading up to the debut of new Contemporary dance work – Muerte Amongst Us.

About the Residency

The work and experiential workshops focus on societal relationships to death/anxiety therefore our approach to life. Aiming to highlight the benefits surrounding the cathartic nature of dance and music.

It is no secret that the human condition is in part a state of suffering at our own hands. By fearlessly opening up conversations with our audience through a canny, fresh approach to experiential contemporary choreography, we aim to address this and open up the possibility of a more accepting and liberated community.

Muerte Amongst Us is inspired by Santa Muerte, a female deity in Mexican and Mexican-American folk Catholicism.
