Atlanta Eke’s acclaimed Body of Work (Keir Choreographic Award, 2014) sees the visceral and mechanical collide. Described as dance meets performance art, this work is both strangely familiar and radical, with its nods to science fiction and cyborg feminism. One of Australia’s most exciting new artists, Eke’s performance is commanding as she stretches the boundaries of a woman, an unfolding present and the functions of choreography, documentation and image.
