The Perception Experiment

A single grain of salt sits on top of a dormant mass. A tentative shuffle begins a migration. The salt trickles, becomes a torrent, becomes a cloud, becomes a pattern; capturing breath and heartbeat before sweeping away.

From the moment you enter the theatre, The Perception Experiment challenges the way you experience a live dance performance. With senses heightened, what you see, hear and feel may not be what you expected.

Choreographers Frankie Snowdon and Madeleine Krenek invite you to explore time and space as they combine elements of dance, sound and salt in a performance inspired by and created in the Australian desert. Through provocative sensory immersion, The Perception Experiment examines our experience of the physical world, blurring its edges and offering an alternative view of how we might navigate through it.

Presented by Arts House as part of Dance Massive 2019
