By Gravity & Other Myths, Corrugated Iron Youth Arts and JimblahMore Info
Darwin Festival, Gravity & Other Myths, Corrugated Iron Youth Arts with Ludmilla Primary School and Jimblah join forces to animate Festival Park after dark.
Expect world class acrobatics and a living, breathing lighting design controlled by over 20 performers, moving and responding to the features of the park in perfect unity. Long-form, journey-like passages of powerful physicality are driven by an electronic score inspired by the sounds and stories of community and country.
Life/Time features seemingly impossible physical interactions, shifting between the intimate and the spectacular in a mobile display like no other. Light and sound come together with all-terrain physicality to create a (literal) moving spectacle that draws inspiration from the ancient ground beneath our feet and the fleeting, intergenerational connections we make above.
