"... an hypnotic mass of overlapping motion which blurred the lines between the organic and the mechnical ... technically sophisticated and visually complex." RealTime (on Antony Hamilton’s The Counting)
A catalytic double bill by choreographer/performers Antony Hamilton and Melanie Lane, in which the symbiotic elements of body, light, objects and sound occupy time and space to explode any perception of a static universe.
Hamilton’s Black Project 1 meditates on the synthesis between the gravity-bound body and its connection to the forces and minerals of the earth. Two beings relentlessly traverse a panoramic, linear terrain, leaving artefacts of human intervention in their wake as they go forth into solitude and emptiness.
Lane’s Tilted Fawn creates an intimate, intense, audio-sensitive universe where our urge to seek transformation through advanced technologies is brought into question. This is a world of sensory delight, in which an orchestra of lo-fi sonic objects propels a lone dancer through landscapes that are by turns luscious, melancholic, stark and utopian.

Clouds Above Berlin Reviewed by Chris Boyd at The Morning After, 8 March, 2012
One hesitates to write a review as glowing as this because, if this work is as good as I believe it to be, we might lose Antony Hamilton to the international circuit and not see him for a decade.
