Australian Dance Theatre is proud to present Of All Things – an enthralling, dizzying, immersive performance experience created by visionary Adelaide-based choreographer Alison Currie in collaboration with award-winning design firm Enoki.
Of All Things is a cross-sensory experience situated somewhere between art installation and dance performance, submerging you into a surrealistic world that will liberate your perceptions of the human body and dance itself. Employing ingenious design elements in union with a company of astounding dancers, Of All Things will take you on an unexpected journey into perception.
As you enter The Odeon you will be transported into an imagined, fantastical alternate reality where the known world dissolves from view. With the interior transformed, the dancers will manifest creatures who possess a symbiotic relationship with the building itself. Using innovative materials and bespoke, constructed forms, the performers will play out a dance that is coupled intimately with architecture and design.
Of All Things is underpinned by the knowledge that everything that exists in the world is ultimately a collection of atoms – the things of the world are all interconnected.
Often working in gallery and museum environments, Alison is a young choreographer to watch. This newly commissioned work for ADT will mark the next significant step in her ongoing investigation into the choreographic potential that exists between bodies, architecture, materials and objects.
She is an artist who possesses a singular vision and hails from a new generation of young choreographers who are redefining contemporary dance in Australia.
Of All Things will be out of this world. Don’t miss it.
