The Perception Experiment

Buy tickets online now

A single grain of salt sits atop a dormant mass. A tentative shuffle begins a migration, gravity-beckoned and persistent. Micro-movements and moments occur over expanses of time, interrupted and intersected by bodies. The trickle becomes a torrent, becomes a cloud, becomes a pattern; capturing breath and heartbeat before sweeping away.

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

Concept, direction and choreography: Frankie Snowdon and Madeleine Krenek
Choreographic Collaborators/performers: Kelly Beneforti and Tara Samaya
