Rituals of Similarity
Rituals of Similarity is a contemporary dance duet by Brittany and Natasha Kohler for Dance Plant Collective, unravelling the intricate layers of twin-hood. Born 7 minutes apart, we entered this world together. Side by side, or sometimes top and tail, we are two individuals, recognised as one. Rituals of Similarity explores the fine line between warmth and friction, rivalry and unity, synchrony and idiosyncrasy. It is a pas de deux of sameness, doubles, and contrasts. How do two identical bodies navigate each other's physicality? Who takes up more space? How does individuality exist within identical appearance? Witness the soft, intimate beginnings, the identical experiences, the subtle spot-the-differences. Rituals of Similarity premiered in Tāmaki Makaurau in August 2023 within Q Theatre's MATCHBOX programme. This will be the Whangārei premiere - 22 & 23 March, 2024 7pm. (50 minutes running time). Dance Plant Collective is a contemporary dance-theatre company based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, New Zealand). Our vision is to create politically challenging and transformative performance work and the roots of our practice are planted in a desire to nurture community, honour the body as a locus of understanding and uphold the interconnectedness of all things. Co-founded in late 2016, Dance Plant offers a unique collaborative practice inspired by the genius of rhizome ecosystems. We embrace both absurdity and authenticity, trusting the spontaneous cross-fertilisation of view-points to produce startling new material staged in equally surprising spaces. Dance Plant Collective have shared award-winning, sold-out performances throughout New Zealand and Australia. We regularly offer collaborative opportunities through a community-based approach within our work.
