There are secrets

There are mysteries

There are forces beyond imagination

 If you turn against Mother Nature, every living creature, every blade of grass will turn on you.

Underworld delves into the dark and murky in-betweens that exist amidst the things we think we think we know and understand. A response to OVERWORLD (Next Wave 2014, Dance Massive 2015), it is prequel that seeks to occupy in the inverse while traversing the spectrum between binaries.

 From the context of an increasingly digital world, Underworld considers our relationship to the physical; flesh, earth, animal, death and the limitations of our human form. Taking its structure from 1978 Australiana horror ‘Long Weekend’, Underworld recycles & re-contextualizes all its content, considering materiality, questioning appropriation, and asking what is ours to take.

 Broken narratives are woven together by movement, sound and film to create a shadowy collage of dystopian futures, gore, and the Australian landscape.

Underworld pays homage to the things that cannot be found, learned or solved online and our complicated relationships to environment and national identity.
