NightdanceDeftly 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.
