Concrete Impermanence World Premiere by alison currie

A conversation with Christchurch based presenter Adam Hayward in 2012 started my thinking and concept development of Concrete Impermanence. We had our first studio development in 2014 and the past four years have involved working with a talented team of artists each of whom has added to the strength of the project.

For the past three weeks performers Amrita Hepi, Lewis Rankin and Stephen Sheehan, sound designer Alisdair Macindoe, lighting designer Matt Adey, creative assistant Carlie Angel, producer Jason Cross and I have been in residence at Restless Dance Theatre studios completing the work ready for premiere this week! 

It has been exciting, challenging and rewarding process to complete this work after four years of thinking, writing and working on it! We look forward premiering in Adelaide on the 17th and 18th of May. Another work I Can Relate is currently screening in the Space Theatre Foyer to coincide with the premiere of Concrete Impermanence at the Adelaide Festival Centre

and more development of  'Concrete Impermanence' in the studio at Restless Dance Theatre and online, on the phone, in the lounge room, in my mind. So much still to do. Look out for the premier https://www.adelaidefestivalcentre.com.au/events/concrete-impermanence/ in May 2018!!
