Nightdance, a new work that investigates the physical experience of the nightclub, and its seductive promise of transformation, primal temptation and sublime release.

Deftly transgressing the realms of traditional dance forms, Lane and her co-performers slide between exotic dance, techno, burlesque and pop as they navigate sound, space and light, and the social, sensual and cerebral offerings-up for consumption after dark. As performers oscillate between entertainer and punter, Lane shines a spotlight on the economy of entertainment, the labour and currency of the body, and our complicity as audiences, voyeurs and consumers.

A collaboration with UK music producer Clark and light designer Ben Bosco Shaw.
