CARRIAGEWORKS AND FORCE MAJEURE PRESENT
Due to the extreme weather Sydney has been experiencing it is with great regret that Carriageworks and Force Majeure will have to cancel the season of Byron Perry’s Obscura. This work, where a large scale camera obscura is created, is unfortunately at the mercy of the elements which have not been kind to the artist.
A new solo dance work by Australian choreographer and performer Byron Perry, Obscuradelves into the processes of life and the mechanisms we use to interpret, communicate and make sense of our world. This rhythmic and hypnotic work explores how meaning can be generated, evolve and become confused through repetition, mutation and accumulation.
Set within a large-scale camera obscura, Perry’s physical exploration brings together natural light and live streams of audio from the surrounding environment to create a unique and unfamiliar performance experience. Multi-award-winning choreographer and performer Byron Perry is Associate Director of Force Majeure.
