The Present Past

The Present Past


Brisbane Festival (Under the Radar) 2012
Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts (Fresh Ground) 2011

Choreographer: Gemma Dawkins

Performers: Caitlin Comerford (nee MacKenzie), Abby Johnson, Katie Neumann, Gabriel Comerford

Is the past really behind us, and the future always in front? What happens when you find yourself standing in a present that looks exactly like the small ruins of yesterday?

This new work revolves around the notion that ‘something has occurred here’ asking audiences to uncover what they have buried, and how far below the surface it lies. 

Representing a brave new collective voice for Brisbane’s independent dance scene, The Present Past makes a mess, finishes where it started and leaves an impression.

Materials: rope, dirt, suitcase, microphone.
