Dancing is an opportunity to exist in an alternate reality both for the dancers and the audience. Someone who struggles with ADHD or ADHD-like symptoms has thoughts that can move miles per minute often being mistaken for ‘day-dreaming’. Clock on Clock off deals with concepts that stem from someone who struggles from ADHD. Basic everyday tasks and routines are hard to grasp onto, and their trains of thought can jump from one task to the next leaving some things left undone or feeling too overwhelmed just by thinking about it all.
In its original development for Tracks Dance Company’s Fresh Tracks program last year, Spillett, along with dancers Ruttiya McElroy, Venaska Cheliah, Anokai Susi and Jenelle Saunders created a range of short and distinctive choreographic segments based on the above themes and personal anecdotes. They were carefully slotted into a well-timed offering. This version for 2022 Darwin Fringe Festival has taken the work into a new dimension with added layers, spaciousness, and length with Spillett stepping in as a dancer and Anokai taking a break. It’s a dynamic kaboom of energetic impulses, high and low voltage levels of human energy, and personal and public stories told by a crew of diverse bodies and brains.
Show dates have changed from Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 to Thursday 14 and Friday 15.
