Multidisciplinary artist Mira Calix premieres her new artwork Inside There Falls.
Seamlessly Incorporating and inventing new technologies in her audiovisual multi-sensory blanched landscape, an exploration of narrative interpretation. Every sheet of paper in her installation is unique. The way it folds and shifts is transitory. The passages you follow, momentary. Dance, choreographed by Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela, is an intervention. Sound is an implication, light is instrumental, music is a metaphor, all multilingual gestures traversing the conventions of storytelling.
The original text, a meditation on myth and identity, was created by the Sydney-based writer Brett Clegg. The narrator is actress Hayley Atwell. Her voice audibly flows between materials reframing and recasting the narrative path for participants to follow, contemplate, explore and in so doing, create their own story.
