Auckland-based performance artist and film-maker, Robyn Jordaan, works with dance and film to offer up a visceral array of concept exploration, including body somatics and absurdist theatre.
Jordaan is driven by contemporary literature; creating comedic-horror type unstructured narratives, contrasting starkly with our current regime - a technocratic society where human nature seamlessly follows a prescribed outline.
