"We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust" (RUMI)
ǟʟƈɦɛʍʏ is the forth collaboration between renowned Australian composer/musician Richard Grantham and leading contemporary performance company, Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre. ǟʟƈɦɛʍʏ is an exploration of the ancient process of transforming base metal into gold. A potent metaphor for the Commonwealth Games, ǟʟƈɦɛʍʏ celebrates the journey towards realizing our full potential, and the power of transformation. The dancers move like shamans or spirit walkers along the path, weaving their way through the inspirational soundtrack, until they finally "spin out of nothingness scattering stars like dust" in the dramatic climax. This is a moving performance work that is meditative homage to the long passage towards greatness.
