Exposed explores the intimacies that constitute our lives, our actions, our thoughts, our traumas, our desires, our failures.

Directed by Michelle Ryan, Exposed reunites the successful Seeing Through Darkness team. The work explores vulnerability, uncertainty and risk. In Exposed, the breath is a metaphor for feeling threatened or safe, agitated or calm. The sonic possibilities of breath will be explored as part of the audio and soundscape.

“It is only when we let ourselves be vulnerable – exposed – that people can see who we really are. When we share our full humanity – flaws, beauty, strengths, and weaknesses – we allow people to love us and accept us for who we truly are.” – Hilary Kleinig

“Restless creates dance that is inclusive of everyone, utilising everyone’s strengths. When dancing I felt included, supported and loved by everybody around me as everyone supported each other.” Secondary student, St Ignatius College

Exposed explores the intimacies that constitute our lives, our actions, our thoughts, our traumas, our desires, our failures.

Exposed explores risk and vulnerability in its many forms including:

  • our defence mechanisms in foreign situations
  • power play and struggles with conflict
  • our physical and emotional response in these moments
  • the habitual reactions we fall back on
  • the risk of being or feeling vulnerable
  • what do you allow people to see of yourself?
