Don't you want to feel my bones on your bones?

This event has finished

Having had its world premiere at Adelaide Festival, Skeleton is set to get under the skin of Melbourne audiences. A surprising dance work from rising choreographical star Larissa McGowan, Skele­ton is a bone-bending examination of human contact and the hidden machinery of the human body, inspired by the work of similarly-skeletally-obsessed Aus­tralian artist Ricky Swal­low with a set design by Jonathan Oxlade.

McGowan is currently wowing Sydney audiences with the Alien/Predator franchises sort-of-tribute 'Fanatic'. Skeleton promises a similarly witty infusion of '80s pop culture: expect BMXs, skateboards and a Karate Kid-esque skeleton fight scene.
