Damien Jalet & Kohei Nawa


Part dance, part dream. Complete poetry in motion.

Australian exclusive


‘A masterpiece – the perfect balance of radical, over the top themes and minimalistic, understated performance.’

- Realkyoto

Out of the darkness, a white organic structure looms above a pool of water. Seven near-naked bodies move on this floating stage, becoming one with the gases, liquids and solids that form all around them.

Celebrated Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet and Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa have created an experience that is truly out of this world. On a set unlike anything seen before, bodies become sculpture as they pulsate to a haunting score by Marikho Hara with Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Part dance, part dream and complete poetry in motion, this visual and aural spectacle will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.
