WHERE DO THE SPIRITS GO WHEN THE WATER RISES?
The Edge Ensemble have created an exciting new work….
Caliban’s island is sinking. Ariel is an artificial intelligence system with the power to save the world. As tensions rise with the tides, who will survive?
Exploring the battle ground of global climate politics through the eyes of those on the front lines, this brand new Australian work floats fragments of stories from South Sudan, Afghanistan, and the Pacific Islands on a wave of dynamic energy that’s heading your way.
Original Show created and performed by the Edge Ensemble: Achai Deng, Abraham Hersan, Piper Huynh, Natalie Lucic, Rex Pelman, Oti Wiloughby
Directors: Tariro Movondo and Dave Kelman
Writer: Georgia Symons
Movement: Amy Macpherson
Music and composition: Callum Watson
Caliban premiered at the Coopers Malthouse 24-26 November 2016.
