1. IInsideThereFalls
    presented by Sydney Festival
    8th-17th January 2015 - Carriageworks Bay 17

    installation presented by Sydney Festival and co-commissioned by Brett Clegg, Gretel Packer, Simon and Catriona Mordant AM & Sydney Festival Project Partner: Sydney Dance Company. Supported by: City of Sydney, Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Andrew Rothery & Julia Champtaloup.

    With Inside There Falls , Mira Calix has created a multi-sensory installation of paper, sound, music and movement. This blanched new landscape seamlessly blends technological innovation and organic materials. Mira views all these differing materials as equal elements and expressions united in the communication of an instinctive and ancient human desire to share stories. Calix has created an sculptural environment, both physical and sonic for visitors, who she views as participants in the work, to explore. The artwork contains a custom built 180 speaker diffusion system, embedded within the sheaths of paper that cascade inside the 45 x 25 meter Carriageworks, gallery space.

    Every sheet of paper in this installation is unique. The way it folds and shifts is transitory. The passages you follow, momentary.Dance, choreographed by Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela, is an intervention. Sound is an implication, light is instrumental, music is a metaphor, all multilingual gestures traversing the conventions of storytelling.

    The original text, a meditation on myth and identity, was created by the Sydney-based writer Brett Clegg. The narrator is actress Hayley Atwell. Her voice audibly flows between materials reframing and recasting the narrative path for participants to follow, contemplate, explore and in so doing, create their own story.

  5. Commissioned to celebrate the re-opening of the Howard Assembly Room, ‘Chorus’ is simultaneously an intensely physical and yet ephemeral experience. An array of motor-assisted pendulums, suspended from the roof, swing through the space emitting light and sound. As the dynamic system evolves, the rhythms revolve through chaos and return to unison, producing a hypnotic and seductive performance that heightens the viewer’s awareness of the space and their relationship with it. ‘Chorus’ is effectively a new kind of musical instrument, one in which the spatial location of each sound is a critical part of the composition of the piece.

    Commissioned by Opera North

    in association with The Culture Company
