Of All Things
At a microscopic level, all things: plants, animals, and people, are the same – all of atoms. Of All Things is an imagined alternate world with its own timeframe for the evolution of new life forms and connections to their immediate environment.
Employing ingenious design elements in union with a company of astounding dancers, Of All Things takes audiences on an unexpected journey into perception. Objects, light and performers simultaneously morph, bubble up, grow and adapt. The dancers are cyclically revealed and concealed as they perform alongside, with and underneath objects and lighting elements that share the stage with their own performativity.
Of All Things is a collaboration with award-winning local interior design company Enoki, features a mesmerising and evolving lighting design by Chris Petridis and a complex, immersive and compelling sound design by Sascha Budimski.
“A complex pas de deux ensues. A silver pillow held between the dancers, creaks and rustles, like the rigging of a sailing ship becalmed on a sea of glass. They hunt and escape, like lovers playing a chasing game or perhaps relentless predator and panicked prey in a dance of death.”
“...right up there as visually arresting and richly textural works go.”
“This is a totally compelling work and while, to me, it all seemed to be about the ocean, the relentless power of water, the spawning of coral, the life and death struggles of marine life, I overheard others talking afterward about desert landscapes, or city rat-races, or alien worlds. I think that we were all correct. I urge as many people as possible to experience it for themselves and form their own interpretation”
