A sunken vessel resting eerily on the riverbed is the backdrop to a new duo by dancers May Greenberg and Zee Zunnur, set to a sound score by Felicity Groom.

Unfolding along the pathway and the water edge beneath the Stirling Bridge, Uncountable explores the excesses and weight of consumerism through movement. Visitors are invited to journey with the dancers and asked to share in their burdens, in a dynamic new work which questions wealth, stability and remembers the weightlessness of water.

Choreographers, dancers: May Greenberg & Zee Zunnur
Composer: Felicity Groom
Dramaturg: Geordie Crawley

Uncountable is supported by STRUT Dance through the PLACE MAKERS WA program. STRUT Dance is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body; the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and Lotterywest.
