Description "Two dancers perform with each other and a series of virtual avatars projected onto mirrors. The mystery of reflection, and our relationship to it, has inspired as often as it has confounded the human imagination: from the myth of Narcissus to those, like Alice, who stepped through the polished surface to enter a world reversed. When we gaze into the mirror, do we merely stare at the mute image of our body? Two of Australia's finest contemporary dancers, Paul White and Kristina Chan, have united with acclaimed choreographer Narelle Benjamin, to discover what it is when reason is confounded."
