Tickets: $30 / $25
Season: 13th to 16th June, 7pm
Run time: 2 hours including interval

Animal, Human and Robot converge to become a hybrid creature born from cultural socialization.

In her new solo work Humanoid, Cloé Fournier embodies the female form as the absolute centre of attention. Delving from the past, living the present and thinking of the future, she examines the metamorphosis of the female entity obliged to constantly adapt to a demanding society or to reconfigure, as a means for survival. Humanoid poetically investigates the choreographic possibilities of the body by studying the animals that are historically associated with the female form: birds.

Humanoid is a blur. An introspective. A reflection. A version of what Female is, should or could be. It is a feeling. A response. A provocation. A disaster, where the female form is both cause and effect.

Humanoid is produced by Cloé [F] Projects and was developed with support from ReadyMade Works.

AFTERGLOW is PACT’s premiere presentation season showcasing the most compelling early career artists. AFTERGLOW: Generations is an exciting new format that aims to build a cross generational conversation that contextualises the work of early career artists within a broad framework.

AFTERGLOW: Generations is an unfunded program. 80% of all ticket sales will be paid equally to Cloé Fournier and Dean Walsh.

PACT receives ongoing support from the City of Sydney and the NSW Government through Create NSW.
