This work sees Tim Darbyshire expand choreography to new realms by means of machinery, object, lighting and sound configurations. A stampede of the senses, the work uses layering, endurance and absurd irrationality to create a turbulent and controlling world.

“the body itself, propelled, pushed, punished by machine or prop.. It is dangerous, masculine, bordering on manic”  – Varia Karipoff, Reviewer

Tim Darbyshire’s works employ physicality, choreography, sound, set and lighting design, visual installations and text, exploring ambiguities and tensions between humorous and melancholic states. Tim studied Dance at Queensland University of Technology (2003). His education has continued through programs including DanceWEB (Scholarship recipient in 2006 and 2009), Formation d’artiste Chorégraphique at Centre National de Danse Contemporaine (France 2006-2007) and Victoria University’s Solo Residency program (2008). He has worked with choreographers including Vera Mantero, Emmanuelle Huyhn, Nuno Bizarro, Meg Stuart, David Wampach, Marianne Baillot, Antonio Julio, Christine de Schmedt, Eszter Salamon and Shelley Lasica.
