The Circuit by Moi Tran
The Circuit is an improvised, durational movement piece conceptualised by Moi Tran, presented by a group of dancers and a live musician. The Circuitous track represents continuum and journey, whilst the action of walking speaks of commonplace, everyday rituals and behaviours that tend to be overlooked.
The Circuit will be performed at the Oval Space on Thursday 18 Jan from 6pm at Oval Space and on Thursday 23 Jan from 3pm at RootStein Hopkins Parade Ground.
