Forest Collective: Labyrinth

February 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$20 – $45

In the haunting corridors beneath Abbotsford Convent, Forest Collective presents a new dance-opera & piano concerto.

Through this immersive theatrical experience, you will descend into the labyrinth of Greek myth, witnessing first-hand the ordeal of Theseus, Ariadne and her half-brother, the Minotaur.

Evan J Lawson’s music and Daniel Szesiong Todd’s libretto confront themes of shame, isolation and redemption, while maverick Melbourne pianist Danaë Killian gives powerful voice to the work’s dramatically-embedded piano concerto. Ashley Dougan’s visceral, yet lyrical choreography brings a desperate humanity to this epic tale.

Sung in English; 1 hour with no interval.

This performance is not a seated event and has long periods of standing. Recommended for people aged 16 and over.

Presented by Forest Collective, Abbotsford Convent and Midsumma Festival.

Supported by the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM).
