Strut Dance is proud to invite you to a free performance in The Courtyard prior to a performance of Black Swan Theatre Company’s Once in Royal David City. Join 14 dancers from all over Australia and New Zealand as they lead you into William Forsythe’s seminal work 'One Flat Thing, Reproduced'.

Normally quarantined to major dance companies – this a a world first – the first time that 'One Flat Thing, Reproduced' has been presented outside in an open setting with a roaming audience, inviting a new conversation between the choreography, the set piece of 20 specially constructed tables, live music from Thom Willems and the architecture of The Courtyard of the State Theatre Centre in a way never before seen.

'One Flat Thing, Reproduced' is the third part of a larger Forsythe work The Questioning of Robert Scott that takes its inspiration from Scott’s own ill-fated race across the ice to identify the South Pole, which encountered great hardship, eventually costing him his own life. Forsythe’s response to this tragic failure is to create a plane of 20 icy tables in counterpoint to the highly organised human movement above it – a choreographic obstacle course over which Forsythe’s continual fascination for complex structure plays out to maximum effect.

Be part of this iconic choreography; start at ground level, stand or sit, or make your way to the upper gallery to look over and take in the full spectrum of the performance within the space.

See the Work, Feel the Work, Be the First!

Running time: 20 minutes.
