Colour Correction

Colour Correction is a live performance that navigates the colour spectrum through movement, text and some tricky questions.

Colour affects each of us differently, in both trivial and profound ways. The relationship we have with colour is as much social and political as it is sensorial and emotional.

In Colour Correction, movement and text are used as the primary tools to navigate the colour spectrum and question the deeply imbued (and often problematic) associations we make with colour. Issues of race, gender and spirituality bubble beneath the surface of the work, as the performers uncover both humorous and sometimes uncomfortable questions about our own, often self-righteous, colour-blindness.

Colour Correction is the latest dance-theatre work from Peas and Rice – the emerging choreographic duo who brought you Self Repair (Melbourne Fringe Festival 2017). They return to the stage with some colour-specific dilemmas in a bid to challenge their assumptions about colour and, in doing so, encourage audiences to rethink theirs.

About Peas and Rice

Peas and Rice have been training in dance for as long as they’ve been reading, writing, and choosing favourite colours. The pair have been creating and collaborating on dance works, for both stage and screen, since 2015 - including their dance-theatre work ‘Self Repair’ for Melbourne Fringe 2017.

Colour Correction is supported by the City of Yarra through a Small Project Grant, and Creative Partnerships Australia through the Australian Cultural Fund.
