Dancers and musicians explore a Sydney that is underwater.
Find yourself immersed in a curious inversion of terrestrial and marine environments. Performers improvise with scientific data projected onto plankton mesh. They awaken from a technological dream to recognise themselves in the rhythms of the sea. They find within themselves the primal forms of an ancient choreography. Circling, spiralling and crossing forms in dance, music and animation create a new world where humans reconnect to ancestral beings.
Plankton mesh suspended in the Customs House foyer invites you to feel part of the performance. Immerse yourself in the ocean that circulates Antarctica and the living data. Plankton, algae, krill, sea butterflies and seals. Find the giant algae, Neptune’s necklace, that dances in the rock pools along Sydney’s beaches.
