The real deal… a manifestation of something transcendent.
The natural frequencies of the body rumbles a deep note, and the mind purrs to joins the body’s song – feeding into an intense and alluring harmony. Inhibition dissolves. On soft ground, a vast earthy horizon, four parts of one whole congregate for an expanded moment.
Admission into the Everyday Sublime assembles a choreographic and sonic experience that that lures the observer through unexpected states of energised tranquillity. Through studies of alternative medicine and energy therapies, this new work by dancer and choreographer Lilian Steiner investigates the body’s malleable relationship to weight and density, light as an extension of the body, the sculptural nature of sound and the healing power of its resonant frequencies.
Seductive and transporting, Admission into the Everyday Sublime invites audiences to surrender to the uniquely therapeutic nature of performance. As perception of time and space is gently altered, two disparate practices – dance and alternative therapies – become one. Reuniting the creative team from Steiner’s Green Room Award-winning Noise Quartet Meditation (2014), this is a performance as restorative as it is stimulating, unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
