An atmospheric dance work that embodies the breathtaking dynamics of the elements, Weather (2012) is an immersive experience inspired by the weather that surrounds and defines us.

“Weather is like choreography; it’s so kinetic, it’s about movement and displacement of air, it has limitless possibilities for dance” (Lucy Guerin, The Age, 2012).

This full-length work is inspired by the connection between human beings, the natural world and the elemental forces of weather. It employs the visceral sensations and dynamic flow of weather systems to generate an intense choreographic exploration of the physical body’s connection to the natural world.
