S Y N O P S I S:
GREENMAN continues director Peter Anderson and choreographer Rosemary Lee's exploration of the human figure in the landscape.
A solitary man in an attic room. He paces and listens intently, stooping and ducking beneath his heavy coat. Something joins him in this empty tower - a magical companion, revealing secrets that transport him from stone to leaves to bog. Is it an old friend or a Pandora's box - should he stalk it or embrace it?
Anderson's distinctive painterly compositions combine with Lee's expressive choreography to create an enthralling character in a bleak, unpredictable world.
GREENMAN is their second collaboration for DANCE FOR THE CAMERA, their first being BOY.

'Ostensibly about a man alone in a stone tower, the work's power evolves from the succession of unanticipated discoveries that he makes going through a magical desk. The colours, textures and shapes of natural phenomena - leaves, nuts, stones, water - evolve into a dramatic kaleidoscope of evocative images.'
