BROMANCEPerformance Space present the premiere in Sydney of Bromance as the final work in our You Are Here May-June season at CarriageWorks from 2-5 June 2010. Bromance is a full- length dancework co-choreographed by Alisdair Macindoe and Adam Synott which explores the life-long negotiation of trust, rivalry and responsibility that is built from childhood between brothers.
The work draws from the experiences of Macindoe and Synott growing up in Australia, and questions why the platonic love between brothers, which so powerfully defines a child’s relationshipto the world, is not often celebrated in art and literature. In Australia where men’s relationships are generally depicted as romantic affairs or business interactions, Bromance explores how men are at risk when opening up a discourse on love between brothers.
Macindoe and Synnott are joined on stage by Jay Robinson and Lee Serle, who use movement to explore the memories and influences of having a brother, and the profound affect it has on young men entering adulthood.
Nominated for a Green Room award for his 2008 solo show, Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain, Macindoe studied dance at Victorian College of the Arts and has worked with Leigh Warren and Dancers, Lucy Guerin Inc. and Chunky Move. Co-choreographer Adam Synott has toured extensively throughout Australia, New Zealand and the US since graduation from the Adelaide Centre for the Arts in 2004, working with the Australian Dance Theatre, Barebones Collective, Leigh Warren and Dancers and numerous other high profile companies. He is currently performing in Chunky Move’s Mortal Engine at the Sydney Theatre. Bromance taps into the memories of these two young artists, asking “What is it like for two men to simply love each other?”
