Come and be amazed – immersed in sound, abducted by aliens and generally transformed
And All Things Return to Nature Tomorrow
Phillip Adams BalletLab
WORLD PREMIERE SEASON
From vibrational energy and utopian impulses to alien abduction, this immersive performance draws together dance, sound, set design and fashion to envelop audiences into an otherworldly, transformative experience.
Choreographers Brooke Stamp and Phillip Adams construct a kinetic space where time is elastic; driven by sublime, generative sound composed by Garth Paine. In the second half – Adams’ Tomorrow – some members of the audience are asked to participate to become part of the installation and performance, creating an architectural abduction experience.
Building on Adams’ passion for collaboration across art forms, the performance features a live electronic score by Garth Paine, set design from architect Matthew Bird, clothing and design by Melbourne fashion designer Susan Dimasi from Materialbyproduct, and lighting design and effects by Robin Fox. Each choreographer will perform in their own piece alongside dancers Deanne Butterworth, Rennie McDougall and Matthew Day.
A participant in the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program.
