Material men is a virtuoso piece for two dazzling performers of the Indian diaspora. Contrasts in style between classical Indian dance and hip hop as well as a shared history rooted in colonial plantations are the starting points for this absorbing dance work. Material Men is a dynamic exploration of rhythm and location as the dancers create new ways of belonging to each other and to the world around them.
Material Men features a newly comissioned score by acclaimed Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin including sounddesign by Leafcutter John. It is played live onstage by The Smith Quartet.
