In Be Your Self, Garry Stewart reveals the precarious stability of the concept of self as the work steps through the conventions we use to construct a singular and consistent notion of ‘I’.
After a series of conversations with a Buddhist monk and a neuroscientist, Stewart began to question what it is that constitutes the self and what it means when we say ‘I’.
2020欧洲杯体育在线平台Set to a wildly unpredictable electronic score by Brendan Woithe, Stewart combined dance, spoken word and video projection to collapse the underpinnings of who we think we are.
Be Your Self first premiered in Adelaide in 2010 and since then has been performed across Australia, Europe and Indonesia in over 30 venues.
This performance we are streaming was recorded in 2012 at the Roslyn Packer Theatre, Sydney.
Be Your Self has interesting cerebral underpinnings and is an absorbing affirmation of both the body and the mind in an impressive and diverting dance work.
