    Setting off on a quest toward an absolute, following a stubborn dream of survival like Don Quixote, Prometheus or Icarus, six male performers go beyond their fear and rise up in order to be on par with the gods. L'Assaut des Cieux (Assaut on the Heavens) exposes the disenchantment of a world while presenting a reading of the present. Perhaps something like a ambient despondence in the face of an end which seems more and more inescapable. Like a parable of the human condition. From control to abandon, from a mastering of form to the capacity of being simply carried away, L'Assaut des Cieux is a concentrate of power and vitality, a vibrating osmosis between dance, circus, singing and theatricality which poetically describes man's attempts to keep on living.

    A la quête d’un absolu, suivant un rêve obstiné de survie tel Don Quichotte, Prométhée ou Icare, six interprètes masculins dépassent leurs craintes et s’élèvent pour se mesurer aux dieux. L’Assaut Des Cieux met en lumière le désenchantement d’un monde et nous donne une lecture du présent. Peut-être celle d’une morosité ambiante devant une fin qui semble de plus en plus inéluctable. Comme une parabole sur la condition humaine. Du contrôle à l’abandon, de la maitrise de la forme à la capacité de se laisser traverser simplement, L’Assaut Des Cieux est un concentré de puissance et de vitalité, une vibrante osmose entre danse, cirque, chant et théâtralité qui décrit avec poésie les tentatives de l’homme pour continuer d’exister.

  2. Tomorrow (short clip)
    Direction and choreography by Phillip Adams
    Performed by: Phillip Adams with Deanne Butterworth, Rennie McDougall and Matthew Day
    Composer: Garth Paine
    Set Design: Matthew Bird (Architect)
    Fashion & Design: Susan Dimasi (Materialbyproduct)
    Lighting Design: Robin Fox
    Production Management: Tom Webster
    Producer: Amelia Bartak
    Film & edit: Matthew Gingold

    And All Things Return To Nature Tomorrow celebrates the long-term artistic relationship between Phillip Adams and long-term collaborator Brooke Stamp who was was commissioned to make her first major work, Part 1 of this double bill; reflecting their common interest in hybrid forms of performance. Each artist's work sits as complementary aspects of a continuum across form and narrative. Audiences are enveloped in dynamic surround sound from the very beginning and by the end, transformed from spectators to participants, active in the artists’ utopian vision.

    Part 2, Tomorrow, grew from Adams’ own esoteric research into alien abduction and a revelatory experience at The Integratron in the Mojave Desert, USA. This became the entry point for Adams’, and collaborating architect, Matthew Bird’s imagined abduction, an architectural installation and spatial oddity of sonic and design interactions between the artists. They have sought to create a “tomorrow” utopia; an unsettled universe desperate to gather, confirm and sexualise a superlative energy united by a utopian impulse to liberate the mind.
