'RADAR' is a new contemporary dance work by Brooke Leeder & Dancers, in collaboration with Louis Frere-Harvey and Nemo Gandossini-Poirier. Sirens and sounds are codes that trigger human movement - a universal, unspoken, sonic form of communication and direction into action. Alarms can also signal stillness; simultaneously meaning different things to different people. Timecoding live instruments, electronic tracks and lighting design, 'RADAR' will merge dancers, light and sound to create a unified body of work, with a small ensemble of musicians behind a large ensemble of dancers. The composition will act as a web of support, holding in silence and in response, launching the bodies into the space, as the lights change in precision along a time coded score. 'RADAR' creates surges of action or caution, movements of urgency and pause, the whole ensemble intently alert in either silence and siren.

Brooke Leeder graduated from Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Dance in 2000 and was a founding member of Trike, performing with Stephanie Lake and Luke George and touring Australia with Phillip Adams' Balletlab. Her first full length work Mechanic was presented by PSAS in 2015, which was awarded the WA Dance Award for Outstanding Achievement in Choreography. Brooke choreographed new works for Co3 Australia and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and toured her work 'The Resistance' to Taiwan for the Kangdu Arts Festival. Her last work, 'Structural Dependency', was nominated for four WA Performing Arts Awards, including Best New Work and Best Production for 2018.
