Inside There Falls – a major new mixed media installation from Mira Calix presented by the Sydney Festival announced. World premiere January 2015


Mira Calix is pleased to announce that her new installation ‘Inside There Falls’ will be open at Carriageworks Bay 17, Sydney, Australia. The world premiere of this new artwork is presented by Sydney Festival January 2015. 

‘Everything is white, a milky mesh punctuated only by the violet-blue of the Southern Hemisphere summer sky and the deep orange glow of a marigold sun’

With ‘Inside There Falls’ Mira Calix has created a multi-sensory installation of paper, sound and movement. A blanched new landscape which seamlessly blends technological innovation and organic materials. 

An installation in the form of a shimmering labyrinth, ‘Inside There Falls’ invites audiences to individually explore and create their own narrative from hidden paper pathways 

In this astonishing creation from British-based artist Mira Calix, the walls literally speak – music, voice and dance converge into a profound and fully immersive storytelling experience at Carriageworks, one of Austalia’s leading and most innovative contemporary art spaces. Recent presentations have included work by Christian Boltanski, Tacita Dean, Ryoji Ikeda and Anne Teresa De Keermaeker. 

Mira has invited Rafael Bonachella, Artistic Director of the Sydney Dance Company to choreograph the intimate and integral dance interventions. The  original text was created by Australian writer Brett Clegg and is narrated by Hayley Atwell.
