A live performance installation for YOU’RE HISTORY!
Inviting audiences deep within the nooks and crannies of Carriageworks’ grand industrial passageways, Box of Birds invades YOU’RE HISTORY! for a mythic late-night journey through the shadows of the human psyche – probing the power of the past, life on the outskirts, and distorted memories in an immersive melting pot of large-scale photography, improvised dance and live music.
Fusing Anne Ferran’s acclaimed photographic trilogy of 1940′s psychiatric patients (INSULA, 1-38, Box of Birds – exhibition) with the unpredictable swing of Australia’s BodyWeather dance collective, De Quincey Co’sBox of Birds conjures a labyrinth-like domain where other-worldly fashion and immersive sound design intertwines with select readings of the legendary German philosopher, Frederich Nietzsche.
