Buzz Dance Theatre

Contemporary dance theatre work that investigated themes of play, pretending and pretension. Playing ‘pretend’ was linked to aspiration, competition and playing the fool. 8 characters are each ‘playing at something’ and creative chaos reigns. The production was nominated for 2 Helpmann Awards in 2006 including one for the full-length sound design by Michael O’Brien in recognition of the work’s innovative and compelling blend of foley sound with music. Each character had their own suite of sounds with a total of 300 different sound effects deployed to convey character and to drive choreography innovatively.
