Somewhere, Everywhere, Nowhere
Humans (for now) live on one planet. This is a globalized, digital world through which we all connect. Yet simultaneously, people are separated by borders, deserts, seas and mountains, cultural histories, political inclinations and languages. Despite this, when we pause to consider, we discover it is also both our similarities and differences through which we connect.
Somewhere, Everywhere, Nowhere stops, rewinds, reflects and composes a collision between the everyday and imagined possibilities. Sound, light, and choreography drift in and out of sync, exposing significant, simple, ephemeral, and absurd similarities and differences between the two creators from two different places: Alison Currie from Adelaide, Australia and Yui Kawaguchi, a Japanese national living in Berlin Germany.
In this new world, chaos is serene, the smallest deviation is the biggest opportunity and humans are defined not by what we know, but rather by what we are yet to discover together.
“This powerful, haunting performance by Adelaide-based Alison Currie and Japanese-born, Berlin-based Yui Kawaguchi explores the constraints and possibilities of this strange new age in which we find ourselves.”
“This is a superb piece of work”
“…mesmeric and affecting…”
“Whether a warning or a lament, this is a performance that will burn deep long after it is over, leaving one pondering for days afterwards about the nature of the era of connectivity and disconnection we now live in.”
