i know the end
'i know the end' is a queer coming-of-age story, encapsulating connection and intimacy through the lens of those that are raised alien to it. In this intimate, immersive dance theatre work, dancers Caroline De Wan and Fern Mines guide audiences through a mercurial world, discovering unknown entities and piecing together figments of a lost relationship. Choreographed and composed by Alix Kuijpers and featuring an SA-based emerging cast, this visceral and incandescent Australian debut will become his first major work since receiving First Class Honours in Dance for his work IMMATERIAL. 'i know the end' has been supported in development by Australian Dance Theatre, The Tanja Liedtke Foundation, Carclew and Dance Hub SA.
"IMMATERIAL is impressive in it's scope. A strong development for an initial postgraduate project presented with great
charisma, performance presence and technical artistry across art forms."- Flinders University
