About

A POWERFUL, CONTEMPORARY DANCE PERFORMANCE

The title of this unique work relates to choreographer Graeme Murphy’s notion that audiences, when confronted with the abstract, will map their own narrative on to what they see. The score (Brett Dean’s Fire Music) was written as a response to the Black Saturday bushfires that raged across Australia’s East Coast in 2009. The costumes by Jennifer Irwin, Murphy’s long-time collaborator, are sewn with tiny mirrors that reflect the searing golden rays of Damien Cooper’s lighting design.
