The Clock: Timepiece

“Guerin has a unique capacity to illuminate deep human emotions through abstract choreography”

Featuring dancers Tra Mi Dinh, Benjamin Hancock, Jo Lloyd and Alisdair Macindoe, and choreographed by Lucy Guerin, this exclusive dance response explores themes around time and how it exists in relation to space.

How to see the work

The dance work runs for approximately 30 minutes, starting just after 2pm in the entrance hall to The Clock. It's a free event and there's no need to book ahead.

We recommend you allow at least an hour for the whole experience so you've got time to catch The Clock before and after Timepiece.

Lucy Guerin Inc

Lucy Guerin Inc is an Australian dance company established in Melbourne in 2002 to create and tour new dance works. Renowned for the skill and originality of its small group of performers, it is dedicated to challenging and extending the art of contemporary dance. New productions are generated through an experimental approach to creative process, and may involve voice, video, sound, text and design as well as Guerin’s lucid physical structures.

The company is a flexible model that values research and risk in the creative process and provides the conditions to question existing notions of dance. This is always a choreographic exploration, striving for visual, emotional and physical revelations that could not be generated or communicated in any other artform.

Over the last 16 years the company has evolved from a structure that enables Guerin’s choreographic projects, to an organization that also supports the development of independent dance artists in Melbourne. Through a program of residencies, classes, workshops, presentations and mentoring opportunities, it is responsive to the shifting ideas and contexts generated by dance and choreography in the world today. 

In March 2019 Lucy Guerin Inc will premiere Make Your Own World, presented by Arts House as part of the Dance Massive festival in Melbourne. Other recent works include Split (2017) The Dark Chorus (2016) and Attractor (2017: a collaboration with Gideon Obarzanek, Dance North and Indonesian music duo, Senyawa).

The company regularly tours works both nationally and internationally to Europe, Asia, Canada and the US.
