Following a critically acclaimed premiere season at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) in 2023, Lucy Guerin Inc’s NEWRETRO will be reinvented for Melbourne Art Fair in 2024 with NEWRETRO REDUX.
This thrilling site-responsive performance installation reconstructs fragments from Lucy Guerin’s incredible back-catalogue, condensing choreography from different time periods into the same temporal space creating a living archive of new, corporeal gestures.
Featuring a cast of 10 exceptional Melbourne dancers, NEWRETRO REDUX will unfold over one-hour, inviting audiences to witness the performance from all sides in an experience at once intimate and spectacular.
A moving celebration of Lucy Guerin the artist, a testimony to her decades-long investment in dancers and dancing and the field of artistic creation. – Philipa Rothfield, The Saturday Paper
Audience members are free to roam and may enter and leave the performance space at any time within the one-hour duration of the performance.
