the perception experiment

About

A trickle of salt becomes a torrent, becomes a cloud, becomes a pattern; capturing breath and heartbeat before slipping away.

In their first work made in Central Australia, choreographers Frankie Snowdon and Madeleine Krenek invite you to explore time and space in this offering of live dance performance, sound and sculptural installation. Through provocative sensorial immersion, the perception experiment strives to examine our experience of the physical world, blur its edges and offer an alternative view of how we might navigate through it.

“This beautifully created and incredibly well realised work achieved near-capacity (sell-out) across each of its performances and whether it was the general public or school matinee show it left each audience engaged and desiring more”.

Dr. Mark Crees, Araluen Cultural Precinct
