A new dance work by Alison Currie
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre’s inSPACE program and Insite Arts
An engaging piece of contemporary dance that reminds us of the inevitable reality of our fragile existence.
Concrete Impermanence interrogates global and personal instability through the dynamic use of sculptural objects, moving landscapes, and the body as form. Don’t miss this beautiful meditation on what it means to be human.
