Program excerpt: An installation in the form of a shimmering labyrinth, Inside There Falls invites audiences to individually explore and seek out its secrets. From hidden pathways made of paper, voices emanate from all around and the entwinements of a pair of illusive and elusive dancers may be glimpsed.
In this astonishing creation from UK-based artist Mira Calix, the walls literally speak – music, voice and dance converge into a profound and fully immersive experience.
Inside There Falls is a space to dream and discover. Visually and aurally sublime, this world premiere work features appearances by Sydney Dance Company dancers and Associate Artists, choreography by Sydney Dance Company’s Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela, and narration by Hayley Atwell.
