Am I is a new music and dance collaboration investigating the notion of ‘I’ within the context of the modern-day global tribe.
Am I attempts to qualify what it means to identify ourselves as ‘I’. Am I my culture? Am I my faith? Am I my genetic material? Am I a random cosmological consequence? No matter which way we turn, the definition of ‘I’ is subjective.
Am I explores that which has changed and that which stays the same in our human condition, investigating the tensions between religion and science, conflict and harmony. Highly physical dance, incorporating ancient fan and stick weaponry, is set beautifully against Nick Wales’ rich tapestry of reinvented world music. Fourteen extraordinary musicians and dancers, including guest artist Shantala Shivalingappa, feature in this stunning new Australian production.
Shaun Parker has researched the fundamental principles of Anthropology, Biology and Cosmology and offers a beautifully crafted and powerful storyboard that embodies the creation of the universe and the exploration of genetic identity; from the Big Bang Theory, to the creation of life, to the evolution of species’ to the formation of consciousness, deities, spirituality and societies.
