Air and Artefact

Air and Artefact featured in the line-up for Perth's Fringe World in 2018.  Performing to sell-out shows at The Blue Room theatre, the show deepened Annette’s ongoing collaboration with James Gentle.

Sound and choreography merge into a fragile volume of memories in this visual song for eggshell and air. The production saw James stepping out from behind his electronic decks and into the performance space. Sampled sounds and live tuba joined with Annette's intricate patterning of improvised choreography, accompanied by the crunch of eggshells underfoot. 

The show made its Great Southern debut at the Vancouver Arts Centre as part of the closing line-up for Curious Happenings, Albany's inaugural Fringe Arts Regional Festival
