Nightly from 9 – 12 March, esteemed Melbourne physical theatre company Born in a Taxi will shroud Arts Centre Melbourne’s forecourt with Enlighten – an enchanting, interactive performance connecting audiences through a sense of wonder and play.
A giant illuminated cube becomes home to three angels, who unify the audience of strangers through interactive events in the spirit of celebration and hope.
Integrating dance, comedy and participatory theatre with a beautiful soundscape and sophisticated interactive lighting projections, Enlighten seeks to illuminate what is important to us and our search for the divine within all. The work swings between the profound, kitsch and joyful.
The performance runs for two hours with the audience invited to stay for as long as they like and either observe from afar, have a blessing bestowed upon them or be chosen to cross over briefly into the heavenly realm.
Born in a Taxi Co- Artistic Directors, Penny Baron and Carolyn Hanna along with founding company artist Nick Pappas are the angels inviting audiences to slow down, take a breath and reflect on how we engage with each other.
Over the weekend during the day and into the late evening, The CUBE becomes a mesmerising space that invites you into the creative process with a program of visual and participatory activities for all ages. Come along and be enchanted by what you discover in The CUBE.
9-12 March 2018
