An evening length duet work for Carlye Eckert and Luke Murphy, Drenched investigates the gulf between the representations and realities of romance in contemporary society. Deconstructing the sources from which we form our expectations and contrasting them with the starker realities of pursuit, desire and codependency,Drenched examines a world of contradictions, parodies, uncertainties and the fundamental search for companionship. With a multi-channel projection installation by video artist David Fishel and a haunting soundscape, Drenched is a viscerally physical dance theatre work with a sharp edge and sharper sense of humour.
