NEONS Never Ever, Oh ! Noisy Shadows & Vacuum (or NEONS & Vacuum for short) impeccably showcases the body in a highly intricate physical movement piece in two parts. The use of LED ticker displays and neon lights add an interesting element for the viewer to interrogate and engage with.
Neons is a story of two men who are experiencing some difficulties in their relationship, and this is further translated in the aggressive nature of physical contact in the piece. Once all the lights are extinguished, the relationship ends.
Vacuum shows the interplay of two bodies appearing and disappearing between black holes and neon lights. The optical illusion and effortless movement from the two performers leaves the audience salivating.
