Wasted - Work in development

Synopsis

WASTED is a dance theatre work IN DEVELOPMENT by Katrina Lazaroff. See videos below.

WASTED explores the idea of wasted human potential and draws parallels between physical and mental waste. It is inspired by Lazaroff's fascination with human psychology and how environmental factors and social constructs impact on our psyche and the way we direct our lives.
