As part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012, Ondru presents Moments through glass – an experimental physical theatre / dance performance.
Composed of fleeting exchanges and a yearning for deeper human connection, Moments through glass examines the fragile and ephemeral nature of human relationships within our present society. Using elements of dance, physical theatre and music, the performance explores our dependence on the emotional attachments that mark our lives. It expresses our compulsion to break the ‘glass wall’ that separates us, and the challenge we face of living with the perpetual separation.
By drawing upon the physical and figurative qualities attributed to the four classical elements: earth, fire wind, water, Moments through glass conveys the dynamics of human interaction and reinforces our inherent connection to nature. It is performed by an international group of collaborative artists and inspired by the words of Samuel Beckett, the unique style of Pina Bausch and contemporary works of dance ensembles such as DV8 and Hofesh Shechter Company.
