ABSENCE OF LIGHT

FIERCE, POIGNANT AND CAPTIVATING

Co-Director: Caitlin Comerford
Co-Director & Performer: Gabriel Comerford
Performer: Amelia Stokes

MakeShift is an independent collective of dancers and dance makers committed to contributing to and fostering a vibrant and diverse independent dance community across Australia, creating art that moves, grounds, arrests, reflects and questions.

Illuminating our darkest and best kept secret, this new work of physical theatre is fierce, poignant and captivating.

Absence of Light is a response to lives lived and lost to depression and anxiety, a story shared by countless Australians.

Using dance, props and metaphor this work opens up a dialogue with audiences, evoking the possibility of shifting stigma and amplifying empathy.

This Project was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
