Subject Matter Object Pink
Subject Matter Object Pink plays with shifting presence, how it moves and multiplies through body, material, and space like a morphing substance. Different physicalities and characters meet through pop and sci-fi undercurrents, transmuting story and emotion into familiar yet non-narrative other-worldlines.
Performed by dancers Alisha McLennan Marler (Touch Compass) and Georgie Goater, the work premiered in Tamaki Makaurau's Basement Theatre in 2016 as part of the triple bill, Sunset Affair with Zahra Killeen-Chance and Tallulah Holly-Massey.

"It is mesmerising and magical and I hope it goes on and on. Joined by Alisha McLennan, we witness two hauntingly articulate perspectives on a shared movement vocabulary."
