Using the performing body pushed to extremes as a symbol for how humanity is exceeding the limits of a sustainable civilisation, unsustainable behaviour is high energy, 60-minute burst of breakdance, physical theatre and contemporary dance that forces us to ask if we are ‘progressing’ ourselves into obliteration?
A quirky, high impact look into our possibly disastrous future, Lingua Franca’s style of blending exceptional physicality with text and voice makes unsustainable behaviour a potent contemporary provocation.
The work premiered at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre in November 2015 was programmed for ARTLANDS, Australia's National Regional Arts Conference in October 2016, and performed in Dubbo as a exemplar of exciting and contemporary work being made in Regional Australia.
Unsustainable Behaviour was produced with support from Local Stages at BMEC, Arts OutWest and Regional Arts Australia through the Regional Arts Fund.
