COSMOS – BAT LAKE
CALLUM MOONEY AND ELIZA COOPER
Cosmos by Callum Mooney is a dance work exploring the idea of the human consciousness, dreams, death and the after-life. Through movement, projection mapping and sound design the three levels of consciousness are visualised as varied worlds within the brain. The incredible performers bring their individuality together for this work to bring the world of Cosmos to life. Visual and projection mapping creates a vivid dreamscape that immerse the performers.
Bat Lake by Eliza Cooper is a dance work celebrating the dark, theatrical world of bats. From pollination to echolocation, the work exposes their nocturnal escapades usually hidden in the shadows. Bat Lake transforms the performance space as elegant beasts glide swiftly across a twilight stage. The work aims to bare these misunderstood creatures, bring their complex characters to life and reveal what lies beneath their mystique.
A production created by Sydney Experimental Arts Ensemble (S.X.A.E). Directed and designed by Eliza Cooper. Choreographed in collaboration with four dancers; Mitchell Christie, Allie Graham, Maxine Carlisle and Strickland Young. Featuring an original composition by Mason Peronchik.
