Description "Structure and Sadness" is a physical, visual and emotional response to a devastating accident in recent history. In 1970, a span of Melbourne's West Gate Bridge collapsed during construction. This collpase changed the project from being a symbol of achievement and unity to one of deep sorrow.
Choreographer Lucy Guerin has based her unique movement vocabulary on the engineering principles of compression, suspension, torsion and failure. The result is a complex and arresting dance work, examing the conflicts between the impressionable human body and the unyielding inanimate world.
