“Inspired by Javanese concepts of the inner and outer universe – each feeding into and mingling with the other – Jagad is a rich tapestry of overlapping viewpoints, the real and artificial, the physical and the ethereal. Throughout Jagad, time is fluid while an ensemble of dancers navigate their universe as live cameras feed videos and projections that distort and shift perceptions. A screen divides the entire performance space as audiences choose which side to experience the work, where their view may be obstructed through the projections and movement of the dancers.” – Dance Australia
