Understory (2021)

A new full-length mid to large-scale company work set to Premiere in 2021.

 

Audiences are invited on stage to experience an absorbing maze of physical narratives that centre around an imaginary future meeting point between the synthetic and the natural world. Manipulating stage flats, amplified sound and a cast of robot like large-scale puppets, the performers direct the audience’s attention, cultivating an intimate, filmic and unexpectedly emotional other world.

 

The inanimate is activated and distinctions between the man made and the human are blurred, raising questions about our developing relationship to the artificial and the potential for manufacturing empathy.
