To live with an urgency, a euphoria, that only an ending allows.
April 16th and 17th || 7.30pm || Judith Wright Arts Centre
An entry, a beginning. A desire to experience, an ode to curiosity.
Ingress is a woman’s indefatigable effort to untether herself from her myth and live with an urgency and euphoria that only an ending allows. Encountering her desire, her curiosity, her danger, Ingress tests and tries the limits of the psyche, each effort an ecstatic force of both the body and the spirit. The action twists and gnarls in figures of torsions and tumbles, in hopeful ascensions on aerial straps, succumbing at times to gravity whilst fearlessly working against it.
With astonishing physical dexterity and courage, Ingress is a glorious celebration of the mortal spirit.
Many months in the making, Ingress was created in collaboration with acclaimed fashion designer Gail Sorronda and dramaturge Heather Fairbarn.
“I wanted to create a compelling work that is daring in concept and form, that initiates my creative path as an independent artist. Ingress is the opportunity to convene with my commitment and obligation as an artist, and expand and interrogate what is possible using the body as the medium to create live art.”
