About the Show
The relationship we have with colour is as much social and political as it is sensorial and emotional. It is sometimes selective, sometimes unavoidable, but always symbolic.
In Colour Correction, a new dance-theatre work from emerging choreographic duo Peas and Rice, movement and text are used as the primary tools to navigate the colour spectrum and question the deeply imbued (and often problematic) associations we make with colour. Issues of race, gender and spirituality bubble beneath the surface of the work, as the performers uncover both humorous and sometimes uncomfortable questions about our own, often self-righteous, colour-blindness.
This work is supported by the City of Yarra and Creative Partnerships Australia through the Australian Cultural Fund.
