About the listing

A trickle of salt becomes a torrent, becomes a cloud, becomes a pattern; capturing breath and heartbeat before slipping away.

The perception experiment invites audiences to explore time and space in an innovative and experiential live dance performance, sound and sculptural installation. Through provocative sensorial immersion, choreographers Frankie Snowdon and Madeleine Krenek, GUTS Dance -Central Australia examine how the physical world may be experienced by blurring its edges and offering an alternative view of how to navigate through it.

Inviting the audience to break the fourth wall by being individually lead into the dance space, for an intimate performance; with shoes off, the audience stand where the dancers would be, the lights go dark, and the sound installation begins. What follows is a sensory experience of moving sound and shifting landscapes - as performers wind through the audience. The audience are invited to sit surrounding the dance floor while becoming engrossed in an exploration of mind and movement as figures interweave in mesmerising circles of salt.
