In a dark and sepulchral world, we sing an acapella wish for the future of humanity.
COMMUNE is an immersive multi-artform event (a blurring of music, dance, lighting design, poetry, bold costumes and theatre), directed by’ The Omega Point and featuring a gothic kaleidoscope of haunting electronic music from their LP in the making.
COMMUNE has been devised collaboratively between musicians, dancers, artists and designers to co-create an evocative, dream-like experience.
Taking place In a vast and spartan Carlton church, dominated by a pipe organ soaring toward the sky, COMMUNE draws us together to contemplate the future of humanity – are we on the path to self-destruction or will this be a new awakening?
COMMUNE, directed by The Omega Point and co-devised with a diverse team of established and emerging artists, including physical theatre performers, drawing on a range of forms such as Butoh and the writings of Antonin Artaud. It will feature: musicians as dancers, dancers as musicians, dream-like multimedia immersion in an exploration of possibilities for the future of humanity.
