Adelaide Festival Centre, Insite Arts and inSPACE present Concrete Impermanence

Posted by Adelaide Festival Centre on Wednesday 4 April 2018

The world premiere season of established Adelaide choreographer Alison Currie’s Concrete Impermanence will be held in Adelaide Festival Centre’s Space Theatre from 17 – 18 May.

Drawing inspiration from the unstable environment made evident by natural disaster and the instability caused by personal trauma, Currie has connected with design company molo using their dynamic expanding and contracting objects to create situations, environments and relationships which are constantly changing.

Choreographer Alison Currie says: ‘’During the past few years I have worked with a wonderfully talented and eclectic group of artists, each of whom have added to the strength of the project. I am excited to premiere Concrete Impermanence in my hometown Adelaide, which is also home to many of the artists involved with the show.” 

Performed by Amrita Hepi, Lewis Rankin and Stephen Sheehan, Concrete Impermanence features a soundtrack by Alisdair Macindoe and lighting design by Matt Adey.

A major component of the lighting design is a LED screen which reacts to the sound score to give a visual description of the sound. This element aims to allow the feeling of the sound to be conveyed to deaf and hearing impaired audiences.

Currie has also been working with Access2Arts and audio describer Lara Torr to develop the script for audio description with insights from the director/choreographer. Every Adelaide performance will be audio described.

Alison’s video dance work I Can Relate will also be presented on a sculpted projection screen in the Space Foyer from 8 May to 21 May.

Adelaide Festival Centre’s inSPACE program is a cutting-edge, grassroots, innovative program that supports some of Australia’s most talented, independent artists.
