Concrete Impermanence

By Alison Currie

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre’s inSPACE program and Insite Arts

World Premiere

An engaging piece of contemporary dance that reminds us of the inevitable reality of our fragile existence. 

Concrete Impermanence interrogates global and personal instability through the dynamic use of sculptural objects, moving landscapes, and the body as form. Don’t miss this beautiful meditation on what it means to be human. 

When performance art is good it hums and vibrates with energy. It reaches out to the audience and brings them in... Kelty, R 2008, Artlink Volume 28 No 3 (regarding Alison Currie’s 2008 work 42a)

Visual description of sound - All performances
A LED screen, built into the set of this work, converts the abstract sound environment into an abstract visual language as a tool to assist deaf and hard of hearing audiences to experience how the sound impacts on the performance.

Audio Described Performances - All performances
A headset soundtrack is available at all performances of this work which plays the soundtrack and an additional verbal description of the performance; the movement of the dancers and sculptures on stage. This soundtrack is timed to match the movements of the actions as they happen in real time.
